Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges, matured in 20% new oak, offers attractive dusky black berries on the nose mixed with cold black tea and bay leaf. Give it a couple of swirls and a lovely crushed rose petal note leaps from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, finely judged acidity, a little grainy in texture toward the finish. There are wonderful pure black and red fruits with a vein of blood orange on the finish. Though not as good as the 2015 maybe, this remains a fine contribution to the vintage.
