2011 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey
These vines came from the Moillard deal in 2005 and they lie to the north of the village on the Vosne side. It`s a wine very much in the style of a northern Nuits, displaying more aromatics and femininity than its southern counterparts. A very seductive Nuits indeed. Drink from 2017.
`Here the presence of the stems is quite noticeable with a green tea and floral character along with spice and red berry fruit nuances. There is a more refined mouth feel to the muscular middle weight flavors that exude a very fine minerality on the firm and ever-so-mildly rustic finish. This is pretty if not profound`. 89-92 points, Burghound
Aux Thorey is situated on the slopes just north of Nuits on the Vosne side of the village and tends to produce a more feminine style of Nuits with a delightful aromatics and fragrance. This has plenty of spice and earth and is more Nuits than Vosne, with some structure and flesh. Drink from 2017-2025
