Domaine Faiveley Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Porets Saint-George 1er Cru 2015
James Suckling: "Extremely rich and opulent aromas with blueberries, orange peel and peach seeds. Flowers, too. Full and round, offering up rich tannins and a flavorful finish. Very persistent. Drink in 2021 but already a joy to drink." May 2017
Wine Spectator: "Dark tones of black currant, blackberry and violet mark this broad, muscular red, which is burly on the compact finish, with an earthy aftertaste, yet there is energy and resonance too. Best from 2022 through 2037." Oct 2017
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "One of the highlights of the range this year, the 2015 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Porêts-Saint-Georges offers up a brooding bouquet of crushed currants, currant leaf, rich soil and grilled game bird. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and chewy with bright, crunchy fruit but a formidable chassis of fine-grained tannins which will demand a good decade in the cellar. For those with patience, this should be a fine proposition." Apr 2018
Winery: "A deep ruby-red color. The nose has black fruit notes and woody fiery aromas. After a round and full attack, this wine proves powerful and full-bodied. It is well-balanced and of high quality, with good cellaring potential."
