2015 Taupenot Merme Nuits Saint Georges 1er cru Pruliers



As the critical notes below attest to, this is a reference point example and then some, with both the solar ripeness of ’15 and the finesse of ’14 sounding appetizing indeed……

“This is often Taupenot’s best 1er and in 2015 it is again with its brooding aromas of spice, earth, the sauvage, cassis and plum that exhibit interesting wisps of leather and smoke. There is outstanding concentration and muscle to the punchy medium weight plus flavors that conclude in a beautifully long and notably firm finish of focused power and seriously good depth. This balanced effort is built-to-age and will need it. Check it out. 93/2027+” 93 Allan Meadows

“The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru has a temptress of a nose, with open, welcoming red cherry, crushed strawberry and subtle mineral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. There is plenty of tightly knitted fruit here, and a patina of oak that is still to be assimilated, but also wonderful detail and subtlety on the sublime, sophisticated finish. This has enormous potential. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (DIAM 10 closure)” 94 Neil Martin
