Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges has a nose that you might describe as more generous in style vis-à-vis its peers, but there is plenty of red and black fruit here, very fine delineation and the oak is judiciously integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannins matched with a fine thread of acidity. This still feels primal, but there is class and elegance here, with just a dab of spice on the aftertaste. This has much more to give. My score tasted blind reflects more that this wine is at an typical awkward stage rather than its full potential at maturity, ergo the positive sign.
