(95-97) The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges took three or four minutes to unfold...but what a bouquet! Copious black cherry, cranberry jus, pomegranate and bergamot scents all infused with stupendous mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, plenty of blood orange infusing the red and black fruit, a keen line of acidity and a gentle grip towards the finish. It constitutes one of the best vintages that I have tasted in recent years. It should be considered a "stunning victory" for the 2015 vintage, but without wishing to sound like a broken record, please cellar this for 5-7 years for it to attain its drinking plateau.

Very pure, vibrant aromas of dark raspberry, licorice, violet and minerals. Then fat, broad, dry and deep on the palate, conveying a refined texture and an enticing combination of sweet, almost chocolatey fruit and saline minerality. Less expressive today than the Vaucrains but this very pure wine boasts subtle soil tones and serious incipient complexity. Finishes with substantial broad, fine-grained tannins and terrific subtle length. Only time will tell if this wine will surpass the Vaucrains.

The comparison of the 2015 Vaucrains and Les St. Georges from the Gouges family is going to continue on long after I have moved on to the next world, as these two wines are going to be reference point vintages of their respective cuvées for half a century or more! Today, I cannot choose a favorite, as the 2015 Les St. Georges is equally brilliant, offering up a pure and bottomless bouquet of sappy black plums and black cherries, raw cocoa, incipient notes of pigeon, a very complex base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a faint hint of graphite in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with an utterly seamless profile, fine-grained tannins, tangy acids and laser-like focus on the very, very long and still very young finish. A brilliant wine in the making. (Drink between 2027-2075)

(92-94) Reductive and wood aromas presently dominate the nose. Otherwise here too there is excellent volume to the succulent yet quite serious medium weight plus flavors that exhibit more evident minerality on the energetic, precise and youthfully austere finale. In contrast to the Vaucrains, this excellent effort is likely to require most of my predicted aging curve before it is accessible.
