Decanter, 97 Points 

"A spectacular result, with dark fruit showing a firm, pronounced mineral and earthy note. There is impressive intensity here, lots of tannic grip and extract, and a finish that goes on seemingly forever. Thibault Liger-Belair owns just over 2ha of Les St-Georges - nearly a quarter of the entire lieu-dit - at the centre of the appellation. The soil is deep clay, and there is a fault in the limestone in the middle which gives the soil a crystalline nature. The grapes are vinified with 40% whole clusters and will be given nearly two full years in cask (half new). Drinking Window 2025 - 2060." 

Vinous, 93-95 Points 

"The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru contains 40% whole cluster fruit. There is an underlying marine element on the nose, a touch of shucked oyster shells behind the veneer of red and black fruit. Lovely focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but firm tannins, dark berry fruit laced with white pepper and a very subtle ash notes, merging into a finely structured and persistent finish. Quintessentially Les Saint-Georges - superb." 

Burghound, 92-94 Points 

"Brooding and equally reticent aromas are comprised by notes of cool floral, especially violet, dark cherry, spice and enough earth character to mention that continues onto the delicious, succulent and quite suave medium-bodied flavors that tighten up significantly on the somewhat chewy, even slightly grippy, finish that displays excellent depth and persistence. This too is going to need extended cellaring to reach its apogee as it's definitely built to age. *Burghound Sweet Spot Outstanding!*
