Romain Taupenot suggested his 2022s show some of the energy and salinity of 2020 but are less concentrated with more red fruit character. They also have the charm of the 2019s, but with higher acid and greater freshness. Whilst the Corton Rognet tipped in at 13.9° the rest of the range were all between 13-13.5°. Romain is typically using 25% new oak for the village wines and 30-35% for the 1er crus.

“Red plums and blueberries on the nose with lead and cedar following. Savoury, sappy red berry fruits attack, lead to a compact palate, nuanced by rich earth and Roibos, guided by lean, quite strict Nuits tannins. Will need a little time to soften but the energy and compositional elements show great promise."
Tom Harrow, Head Wine Guru

What the critics say:

93-95/100Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

"A bright mid purple. The bouquet speaks well of the place, with its bright ripe plums, plenty of vibrancy but also clearly in balance. Bright, dense, concentrated red fruit with a compact yet dynamic energy throughout. Finishes with a balanced freshness, tannins and acidity in the right proportion. Drink from 2032-2038. Tasted: November 2023."

91-93/100Neal Martin, Vinous

"The 2022 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers ler Cru has a very focused bouquet with fine minera/ite, gaining cohesion with time and hints of rose petals. The medium-bodied palate is strict and poised, with fine-boned tannins, good depth, and a sustained, marine-tinged finish. Very promising."

17/20Matthew Hayes, Jancis Robinson

"Mid ruby. Dense nose of red fruits and a little cassis. Volume and density on the palate too – some Nuits typicality in added weight and tannic structure. By no means heavy, this is compact. The acidity remains refined and elegant and there’s a long finish."
