Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers from Domaine Jean Grivot has a more introverted bouquet with woodland scents, hints of morel mushrooms infusing the clean and pure mixture of red and black fruit. Like Jean Chauvenet's "NSG Perrières," there is sensible use of oak here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine balance, veering towards more red fruit in the mouth (redcurrant and raspberry) mixed with a splash of balsamic. I like the tension here, the elegance and purity. I reckon this will get better and better so I would afford it another couple of years in bottle.
