2014 Domaine Taupenot-Merme Les Prulieres Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru France

$97.99 USD

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers from Taupenot-Merme, closed under Diam 10, is lively and penetrating on the nose: red cherries, wild strawberry, a tang of marmalade and even a hint of rhubarb. This is quite complex and evolving, gaining more and more harmony as it opens in the bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, fine but quite solid tannin that lend this backbone, impressive density and a gentle grip toward the saline finish. This Nuits-Saint-Georges has bags of potential and punches above its weight, but my advice would be to cellar for 4-5 years. Tasted September 2017.

94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A tightly knit red, this doesn't give up the black cherry fruit easily. Earth, iron and spice flavors chime in as this builds to a mouthwatering finish. Reveals a light vegetal note on the aftertaste. Needs time. Best from 2021 through 2045. 14 cases imported.
