"The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos Des Porrets ratchets up the intensity noticeably yet shares a similar sunny, rounded, almost sexy style. Wonderful ripe strawberries and blueberry fruit as well as ample notes of violets, flowers, lavender, and spicy wood all emerge on the nose, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, an expansive, layered mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and bright yet integrated acidity. This is a beautifully complex, balanced Clos Des Porrets that has plenty of upfront charm and appeal, yet the balance and class to evolve for 15-20 years or more. As I wrote last year, the style at this estate has change dramatically over the past handful of years and the wines today are more balanced, charming, and approachable, and I suspect will age even better than wines of the past."

"This is fresh, delivering violet, black cherry and black currant flavors, matched to a vibrant structure. The tannins are light yet sufficiently dense to exert moderate grip on the spicy finish. Best from 2021 through 2033."
