This Joseph Faiveley Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru comes from a premier cur vineyard located in the village of Nuits-Saint Georges and this sits smack in the middle of the famous Côte de Nuits AOC, separating the 41 Premier Cru vineyards that the region rich is effective in two groups: north versus south. Wines from the north tend to exhibit bright red fruit and floral aromas and flavors while those from the south offer more black fruit, earth driven, larger tannic wines. This appellation also shares a much-coveted border: across the border, you could have one foot in Vosne-Romanée and one foot in Nuits-Saint-Georges. This Joseph Faiveley Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru has the beautiful fresh light pinot noir color with notes of sweet strawberries with fresh flowers and mandarins in the nose. Medium-bodied with round, firm tannins and a spicy, flavoursome finish. Very typical of the appellation. Drinkable now, but even better in a few years.
