92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 1999 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Forêts Saint Georges is elegant and expressive, bursting with aromas of violets, ripe berries, sweet spices and rich savory nuances. On the palate, it’s ample, medium to full-bodied and satiny, with stunningly elegant structuring tannins, a succulent core of luscious fruit and a long, precise finish. This is a beautiful wine that is aging on its impeccable balance. (WK) (12/2018)

Slightly dull medium red with a good dark core. Aromas of black raspberry, truffle, mocha and pepper, plus a balsamic hint of cedar; seemed to grow darker and gain in freshness with air. Silky on entry, then still rather wound-up and unyielding in the middle palate. Finishes firm-edged, bracing and long, with a strong acid backbone and slightly granular tannins. Will this wine become more harmonious with more cellaring or will it become more tertiary in character without growing suppler? Certainly it needs to be buffered by food today. (ST) (3/2018)
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
