Tasting Notes

More discreet wood influence easily allows the aromas of plum, dark currant, earth and evident sauvage character to be appreciated. The richer, more powerful and more complex if less mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors are blessed with plenty of dry extract that helps to buffer the very firm, robust, compact and youthfully austere finale. I really like the sense of energy and while this is a big wine, it's not a block of tannin.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (73), January 2019

The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pruliers displays aromas of plums, strawberries, rose petals and earthy soil tones, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny palate with good concentration and an open-knit, charming profile, concluding with some firm back-end tannin. This is an unusually accessible Pruliers that will offer atypically precocious drinking.
