'The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges Clos des Forets Saint Georges is totally explosive in the glass. An exotic mélange of dark red fruit, smoke, iron and a host of ferrous notes convey an overall impression of gravitas. Firm yet well-integrated tannins provide the backdrop for this structured, intense Burgundy. This is classic Nuits, especially in its structure. The Clos des Forets Saint Georges is a blend of three Cuvées that span the entire hillside, something that is quite rare in Burgundy, where only a few vineyards span the entire length of the hill. The highest portion of the site gives the wine its lift, while the oldest vines, those that confer richness and depth, are in the middle. The lowest portion of the hill adds tannin, but it is the least polished on its own. The final blend is approximately, 30%, 50% and 20% of the three Cuvées respectively 92-94 points.'
