The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cras 1er Cru has a tertiary, more introverted bouquet compared to the domaine’s other 2017s. Touches of sage and sous-bois emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. A lighter style of wine from this Premier Cru, and maybe just missing a little grip and body toward the finish. Enjoy this over the next decade.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030
