93-95 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Half of the fruit is from the domaine, and half is a regular contract. Rich even purple, with a supple, hedonistic, joyous raspberry fruit and some ripe cherry notes. Firmer tannins behind and the typical acidity of the vintage, but so much fruit to cover the bone structure. (Nov 2021)"
93-95 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru, a mixture of owned and contracted fruit, has a very floral bouquet with raspberry, wild strawberry and a touch of violet, building nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation, fine energy and poise, slightly chalky in texture with satisfying salinity on the finish. This has a lot of potential. Excellent. Drink: 2026-2050. (Dec 2021)"
94 points Christy Canterbury, MW (TimAtkin.com): "This exudes mineral tones and crushed limestone along with loads of black stone fruits and bramble. There is an underlying forest floor element, too. Fine, short-grained tannins blend with good acidic verve to frame this generously fruit-driven wine. This a Nuits-St-Georges through and through. 2024-33. (2022)"
92-94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Offering up aromas of dark berries, red plums, sweet spices and a deft framing of new oak, the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges is medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, with a deep core of fruit, bright acids and powdery structuring tannins. This is a seamless, elegant wine that shows considerable promise. (Jan 2022)"
92-94 points/'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "This is aromatically actually quite similar to the Cazetiers if perhaps just a bit fresher still. The sleeker if slightly less concentrated and powerful flavors also brim with minerality and dry extract that does a fine job of buffering the tautly muscular, more austere and more structured finale. This too is most impressive. Drink: 2035+. (Jan 2022)"
Bill Nanson (Burgundy Report): "More height and depth to this very silky aroma – it makes a strong, impressive, impression. Mouth-filling again – lovely structure, slightly drying tannin but with no visible grain. The oak is almost gone. Slowly fading – classy, excellent, wine… (Jan 2022)"
