Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey, which is matured in 80% new oak, has a very seductive, nicely defined bouquet with strawberry and cranberry scents combining with cold limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with confit red berry fruit on the entry, fine structure with a gentle grip on the marine influenced finish. This is a very fine Aux Thorey, although it would have been enhanced with say, 50% new oak rather than 80%.
BurghoundA softly spicy and broad-ranging nose displays notes of earth, plum, cassis and a hint of smoke. Here too there is a relatively fine grain to the supporting tannins that impart a refined feeling to the delicious and detailed middle weight flavors that possess a lovely vibrancy on the ever-so-mildly austere finale. I like the balance and this should be attractive young if desired. 89-91
