Cherry and strawberry flavors override the slight reduction, led by the vibrant structure to a long, mouthwatering conclusion. Balanced, pure and focused, if compact, with a tight finish. This improves with air, so decant now or be patient. Best from 2018 through 2032."

Tasted blind at the annual 'Burgfest' tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges has a nose that you might describe as more generous in style vis-à-vis its peers, but there is plenty of red and black fruit here, very fine delineation and the oak is judiciously integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannins matched with a fine thread of acidity. This still feels primal, but there is class and elegance here, with just a dab of spice on the aftertaste. This has much more to give. My score tasted blind reflects more that this wine is at an typical awkward stage rather than its full potential at maturity, ergo the positive sign."

The 2012 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos des Porrets Saint-Georges 1er Cru offers satisfying levels of red and black fruit on the nose, and quite seamless thanks to the oak being neatly entwined. Undergrowth scents gradually emerge with time. The palate is marked by ripe tannin, quite crisp and backward, yet it displays the pedigree noted on previous bottles. Tasted at the Gouges retrospective at La Cabotte."
