Domaine Gerard Julien & Fils Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Saints-Juliens 2019Regular price $74.99
Inside Burgundy: 90-92 Points
Not planted for a long time, until the 1950s. This plot has been kept separate since 2014, and is also matured in 70% new wood. Rich deep purple. The fruit is trying to emerge on the bouquet but it is early days yet. This delivers quite a lot more punch in terms of fruit intensity on the palate. Excellent aftertaste on red-black fruit, some dark cherries, while the tannins are well balanced.
NSG Aux Saints-Juliens ---- "Aromas of raspberries, plums, raw cocoa, exotic spices and loamy soil introduce Julien's 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Saints-Juliens, a medium to full-bodied, lively wine that's a touch more concentrated and tightly wound than Julien's blended communal Nuits-Saint-Georges. It will reward a modicum of bottle age." - 90+pts WA
