A single parcel Nuits Saint Georges villages from the Vosne/NSG borderline, from 60+ year old vines, a value hound’s source and then some. This joins the Bas de Combe single parcel villages that I prize so much from the Mugneret-Gibourg sisters/Georges Noellat/Hudelot Noellat as an overachieving crossover face of Vosne meets NSG, with the finesse and spice of things Vosne, with a kiss of savory/slightly chewy tannic structure à la NSG. This is wow wow good, with Jasper once again echoing my sentiments…..The value quotient here is awesome.
2019 Jean Pierre Guyon Nuits Saint Georges villages les Herbues
“Fine deep crimson purple. Gorgeous heady nose, some violets in with the deep dark raspberry fruit, some spice too. Good acidity, white pepper, very spicy finish which slightly changes the character. Long finish! Tasted: November 2020” 90-93 Jasper Morris
“The 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Herbues opens in the glass with notes of cherries, raspberries and sweet spices, complemented by a perfumed top note of peony. Medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, its generous core of fruit is framed by lively acids and powdery tannins that gently assert themselves on the finish.” 89-91+ William Kelley
