Nuits-St Georges les Porets-St Georges Premier Cru J Faiveley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Les Porêts-St Georges is a marvellously full-bodied Nuits-St Georges wine<br/>from the heart of the appellation. The bouquet is closed for the moment but the<br/>fruit on the palate shows what a class act this is. Give it time. <br/>(Jasper Morris MW, BBR Buyer)

Deep, oaky, plummy nose. Dark plum on savoury palate. Great wine!

Red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of cassis, licorice and flowers enlivened by cooler crushed stone and mineral notes. Sweet, suave and fine-grained; primary, juicy and densely packed. Finishes with substantial but refined tannins and excellent length. Very promising. Hervet noted that Faiveley vinified most of the 2009s with about 25% whole clusters with the objective of “civilizing the tannins.”

Moderate floral notes add breadth to the very fresh and earthy red currant and plum aromas that lead to precise, vibrant and attractively transparent medium-bodied flavors that are complex, serious and persistent. This is a classic Nuits with fine balance.

Bright medium red. Initially reticent aromas of wild red berries and medicinal herbs are joined by a note of cherry liqueur as the wine opens in the glass. Silky, sweet and light on its feet; conveys explosive inner-mouth perfume, with a powerful crushed stone element contributing sappy energy. The longest and strongest on the back end of these 2008s to this point, with the berry and crushed stone flavors complicated by a savory character. I find this quite unforthcoming today, but this was nonetheless slated to be bottled in December. It will require a good decade of cellaring and should be very long-lived.

Good full, medium red. Deep but somewhat reserved aromas of wild red berries, minerals, iodine and spicy oak, lifted by a floral topnote. Wonderfully concentrated, silky and sweet, with almost shocking early sex appeal. This really stains the palate on the back end, finishing with terrific energy, sweetness and lingering perfume. It's hard to imagine anyone not liking this style. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 10, Stephen Tanzer

Bright medium red. Medicinal black cherry, licorice and a stony element on the nose. Large-scaled, powerful and penetrating, with a sappy small-berry intensity and an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity. Finishes with crushed stone and saline nuances and outstanding lift. Wonderfully sappy Corton from what Hervet described as a normal yield of about 40 hectoliters per hectare. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 10, Stephen Tanzer

Tasting through the individual lots with Berenice Lurton, what comes across are the components of a crisp, refreshing, minerally Climens that may not have as much botrytis as previous vintages, but will have a thrilling sense of tension and poise. It... Robert Parker. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Climens 750ml
