94 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): "The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Les St. Georges bursts from the glass with a dark, powerful voice. This is classic Les St. Georges. At times a bit on the rustic side, the wine makes up for its occasional firmness with tons of fruit, massive structure and tons of personality. There is an implosive quality that suggests the 2009 is holding back much of its potential. I can't wait to taste this with another few years of bottle age. Drink: 2019-2029. (Apr 2012)"

94 points/'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a huge 2.10 ha parcel). A distinctly earthy nose of red currants, iron and a hint of the sauvage that is also reflected by the rich and full-bodied yet supple flavors that are underpinned by relatively sophisticated tannins on the very firm and serious finish that is moderately austere at present. Patience will be required as this tremendous effort is very solidly structured. Drink: 2025+. (Jan 2012)"

93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "(14.8% alcohol): Bright, full red. Cherry, spices, leather and truffley underbrush on the nose. Creamy and rich in the mouth, with grand cru volume to the cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. Not as minerally as usual for this top cuvee, but boasts wonderful retention of fruits and spices for the year. Finishes horizontal, smooth and very long. Lots of millerandage here, notes Liger-Belair. (Mar 2012)"
