Description

"91-93/100 - Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com17+/20 - Jancis Robinson MW"Les Porrets-Saint-Georges (often spelled Les Poirets-Saint-Georges) is a Premier Cru climat of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation in the Cote de Nuits. The name Porrets/Poirets is thought to be a reference to the pear trees (poiriers in French) which once grew in the area. They were uprooted in favor of more-profitable grape vines." Wine Searcher"From Hospices de Nuits. Light and sinewy and not very expressive on the nose. All structure rather than fruit at the moment." Jancis Robinson MW"The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Porrets St. Georges (Hospices de Nuits) has a lovely undergrowth-tinged bouquet with plenty of red berry fruit mixed with touches of wet clay and briary. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good substance with a weighty finish that exerts firm grip. Quite tertiary in style, well crafted with plenty of character." Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com"
