Wonderful ripe strawberries and blueberry fruit as well as ample notes of violets, flowers, lavender, and spicy wood all emerge on the nose, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, an expansive, layered mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and bright yet integrated acidity. This is a beautifully complex, balanced Clos Des Porrets that has plenty of upfront charm and appeal, yet the balance and class to evolve for 15-20 years or more. As I wrote last year, the style at this estate has change dramatically over the past handful of years and the wines today are more balanced, charming, and approachable, and I suspect will age even better than wines of the past.

It’s an intense, aromatic and comparatively early-drinking style with some chalky freshness, medium-weight tannins and a hint of volatility.

The 2017 Clos des Porrets is going to be a classic example of this fine terroir, with the bouquet offering up scents of roasted red and black cherries, a touch of new leather, woodsmoke, a very complex base of soil, grilled venison. Bitter chocolate, a hint of chicory and a deft framing of vanillin oak. This is by far the most structured and masculine premier cru in the cellar, up to this point. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite pure on the attack, with a very solid core of fruit, a proper sense of youthful reserve, ripe tannins and a very long, very well-balanced and soil-driven finish. This is excellent and will need fully a decade (or perhaps a bit longer) to blossom and start to stir. It is a dynamite Nuits in the making!

It has Nuits richness without sweetness, concentration without any sense of weight. A cool stoniness to the tannins brightens the flavor as it lasts. It’s refreshing and well worth aging for five years or more.

The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit. There is an initial burst and then everything clamps back down so that the second half is structured and grippy. Lacks a little charm at the moment, but give this time in bottle. -- Neal Martin

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and decidedly velvety for a young Clos des Porrets, with ripe tannins, tangy acids and a long, succulent finish. - WK
