Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale has a more sophisticated and nuanced nose compared to its peers, red and black fruit here and well integrated oak. The palate is smooth in the mouth, supple and quite plush, clearly with some quality new oak that is almost Cathiard-like in style (something that appears to have evolved in the last few months). However, there is fruit to support that here. Give this 2-3 years in bottle and it should turn into a very decent Nuits Saint-Georges.
Terrific depth and focus on the nose: blackberry fruit on Nuits seen through the delicate aromatic prism of Chambolle. The palate is a bit pinched and inky in comparison – I’d hoped for more after the nose. This seriously needs to loosen up. Alex Hunt MW
Dark berry focused Nuits and at the same time, reserved and focused. Firm, ripe tannins on the palate with linear acidity and wonderful purity of flavors. Enjoy in 2 to 3 years' time. Tasted in: Burgundy, France. Maturity: Young. By jennie cho lee 2015
