(92-95) Here the oak/menthol influence on the spicy aromas of plum, cassis and soft earth is more moderate though it's still far from subtle. There is both excellent volume and precision to the delicious, sophisticated and energetic medium-bodied flavors that possess a taut muscularity before concluding in a gorgeously complex and persistent finish. This is pretty much textbook Les Cailles though one that is also clearly in need of extended cellaring.

Wine Spectator, January 2019
A straight-ahead, fruity style, featuring cherry, raspberry, spice, underbrush and iron aromas and flavors. Just when you think this is open and approach-able, the assertive tannins kick in. Best from 2023 through 2040. ... A straight-ahead, fruity style, featuring cherry, raspberry, spice, underbrush and iron aromas and flavors.

(88-90) The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles has quite a plush and outgoing bouquet with hints of licorice and damson developing in the glass—just a touch of headiness here. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe black cherry and boysenberry jam notes, a little smudged on the finish where I would be seeking more tension. But I suspect this will improve once in bottle. -Neal Martin

The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cailles 1er Cru is much more reticent on the nose compared to its peers, the fruit is subdued at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, firm grip, a little chewiness implying a heavier than necessary extraction although there is satisfying length. Just a little broad-shouldered and uncouth at the moment. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. -- Neal Martin
