Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers is showing brilliantly, bursting with aromas of cassis, licorice, grilled meats, sweet soil tones and black plums. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, textural and enveloping, with a deep and multidimensional core of concentrated fruit, an ample chassis of powdery tannins and a long, sapid finish.
VinousThe 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Murgers 1er Cru is more expressive on the nose compared to the Aux Thorey, with sumptuous fruit: cassis, blueberry and raspberry preserve, plus hints of fresh fig in the background. This is an NSG that wants to be noticed. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins and a fine line of acidity. Quite structured, with a dense, rigid finish that (unlike the nose) suggests this should be cellared for several years. Impressive.
