PHILLIPPE PACALET 2010 NUITS ST GEORGE

BURGHOUND 92 POINTS "OUTSTANDING, TOP VALUE": "A notably smoky and intensely floral nose also evidences notes of game, earth and spices on the red currant and blue pinot fruit aromas. There is impressive richness and power to the full-bodied, muscular and intense flavors that are very Nuits in character yet there is only mild rusticity to the wonderfully persistent and complex finish. I like the balance because while the tannins are quite firm they're not hard or dry and this should amply reward extended cellaring. 92/2022+"

eROBERT PARKER 88-90 POINTS: "The 2010 Nuits St. Georges wraps around the palate with layers of expressive fruit. This is a subtle wine very much in the Pacalet style that nevertheless shows plenty of village character. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Philippe Pacaletís wines stand apart from the vast majority of wines being made in Burgundy today. Pacalet favors a very natural approach to viticulture and winemaking. Whole bunches, with 100% stems, are crushed by foot. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are done with indigenous yeasts and bacteria. There is no SO2 added during vinification. A touch of SO2 is added towards the end of aging and again just before bottling. These are some of the most natural wines being made in Burgundy today. At the same time, it is impossible to escape the fact that the house style marks these wines to a greater degree than is common throughout the region. The Pacalet wines are undoubtedly beautiful, but they are also eccentric. They should only be purchased by readers who like and understand this style of winemaking, or by those who seek to understand it."
