Premier Cru Red Burgundy Takes #1!

We wrote about many outstanding wines last year, all of which offered exceptional quality and value relative to their peers.

Among all the swishing and swirling, this red Burgundy showed so much charm and silky finesse, it was easy to anoint it The #1 Pick.

The Nuits Saint Georges appellation is best known for its complex and structured reds. "Robust" and "well-built" are common descriptors. When you add silky-smooth to a well-built frame, you have the recipe for the #1 wine.

Here's what we loved most about this NSG:

Exotic aromas of blackcurrant mingle with spicy, ripe cherry, and blackberry. Allspice, red cherry, pomegranate, and blackberry reveal on a creamy, smooth, and round palate. It is surprisingly light on it feet for the appellation and lusciously approachable thanks to a warm vintage. A refreshing lift of cedar, minerals, and acidity offer lift and vibrancy.

The "Clos des Forest Saint Georges" vineyard is a 1er Cru monopole, which means it is a single estate vineyard owned by one entity or family. The vineyard covers a mere 7.2 hectares, which makes the wine from this monopole even more exclusive.

We tasted this wine not once, not twice, but three times on three separate occasions. And, each time, the reaction was the same: "#1".

Enjoy!
