Outer quote mark One of the clear standouts in this range, the Nuits Saint Georges Clos des Forets Saint Georges possesses superior muscle and pure depth. Black fruit, smoke, tobacco and licorice flesh out as this broad-shouldered, structured Nuits shows off its inimitable personality. Layers of fruit build to the huge, vibrant finish. This is a terrific example of both Nuits and Clos des Forets St. Georges. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2014)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
Outer quote mark A brooding but notably ripe nose of dark cherry and pungent earth aromas slides gracefully into strikingly rich and tautly muscular big-bodied flavors that possess praiseworthy concentration. There is plenty of underlying tension and energy to the mouth coating and very serious finish that displays only a touch of rusticity. This overtly robust effort will, as is usually the case, require plenty of bottle age. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2014)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Outer quote mark Bright, dark red. Superripe aromas of red cherry, raspberry and spices lifted by crushed-stone minerality. Creamy and full yet vigorous, with serious calcaire lift to the cherry and spice flavors. This lovely, vibrant wine may not have the volume of the young 2012 but it possesses a firm spine for aging and finishes with excellent persistence. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (3/2014)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Nuits Saint Georges Clos des Forets St Georges 2011 is closed on the nose compared to the Clos de l’Arlot: rather subdued with blackberry and sous-bois notes trying to get out from the glass with which they seem tethered. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, lithe red cherries and strawberry fruit with a taut and linear, quite spicy finish that lingers nicely. Very fine – but it needs another 3-4 years in bottle. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2014)
