“The new addition from last vintage, the Nuits “aux Cras” is really outstanding in 2014. The bouquet is deep, complex and very black fruity in its mélange of black cherries, sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, gamebirds, dark soil tones, espresso and nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very sappy at the core, with ripe tannins, lovely transparency, bright acids and really excellent length and grip on the perfectly balanced and nascently complex finish. Superb juice. 2024-2060. 93+.” John Gilman

“(only Cheurlin’s second vintage for this wine as he recently regained control of the vines): Very dark red. A note of musky reduction to the scents of explosive fresh red fruits, stony minerality and graphite. Thick and dense but with a stony lightness of touch. Tactile, utterly silky wine with terrific inner-mouth mineral energy giving it a light touch. Finishes long, smoky and refined, with a serious tannic spine. From friable calcaire in a warm site, according to Cheurlin. A very suave example of Nuits-Saint-Georges.” 91-93 Steve Tanzer
