2020 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers, Jean Grivot

This is a wonderful 2020: vibrant, concentrated, and energetic. It’s extra umph might be due to the fact some rain fell in this sector of Nuits-St-Georges just before harvest, and unlocked the vines, that otherwise might have started to show some drought stress. It has an ample body, and silken tannins with just a little kick of grip at the back. The clay soils of this part of Nuits are really coming into their own with these dry summers.

TASTING NOTES

The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru is the one cuvée that is more confit on the nose, missing the delineation of other cuvées from Grivot, mulberry and cassis scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, candied entry, quite fleshy and ripe, fine acidity with vibrant red fruit towards the finish, a little heady but still pleasurable.
