(92-94) The 2015 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers has a perfumed bouquet with very good vigor, ample red and black fruit that seem very expressive, subtle hints of undergrowth and cold wet limestone percolating through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very harmonious with good salinity, especially on the sappy finish that is beautifully defined. The body and presence here is superb, maintaining that nascent restraint that will be relieved once in bottle and given requisite bottle age. -Neal Martin

(90-93) This is often Taupenot's best 1er and in 2015 it is again with its spicy, earth and overtly sauvage-inflected nose of cassis and plum that exhibit interesting wisps of leather and smoke. There is outstanding concentration and muscle to the punchy medium weight plus flavors that conclude in a beautifully long and notably firm finish of focused power and seriously good depth. This balanced effort is built-to-age and will need it. Check it out.

Most examples of young Pruliers that I taste are overtly black fruity in personality, but the 2015 version from Romain Taupenot has a lovely touch of red plum on both the nose and palate that is very exciting. The nose... Most examples of young Pruliers that I taste are overtly black fruity in personality, but the 2015 version from Romain Taupenot has a lovely touch of red plum on both the nose and palate that is very exciting. The nose wafts from the glass in a ripe and pure blend of black cherries, red plum, hints of the forest floor to come, raw cocoa and a fine base of dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a sappy core, an impressive soil signature, fine-grained tannins and excellent backend lift and energy on the long finish. This is excellent. (Drink between 2025-2070)

Pure but tight aromas of medicinal cherry, licorice and smoked meat, lifted by a rose petal nuance. At once opulent and tangy on the palate, offering youthful flavors of black cherry and savory earth tones. Finishes firmly tannic, classically dry and a bit ungiving. Strong material here, but this wine will need patience.
