Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(AG=91-93) The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Murgers 1er Cru offers lucid red cherry and crushed strawberry aromas on the nose. The oak is neatly integrated, and the terroir shows through nicely. The palate is silky-smooth on the entry with fine tannin, and the quality of this Premier Cru really shows through. Thereâ€™s just a dab of white pepper toward the structured but expressive finish. Quality winemaking here.
(RP=90-92) The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers is also showing well, offering up notions of plums, candied peel, sweet spices, smoked meats, and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny, and elegant, with fine tannins that belie its Nuits-Saint-Georges identity and a sapid core of fruit. It's an expressive, supple Murgers that will offer a broad drinking window.
(AM=90-92) A restrained and beautifully fresh nose offers up notes of red and dark currant, violet, earth, and a hint of wood toast. There is a good muscle, punch, and power to the middleweight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the beautifully persistent if youthfully austere and detailed finish. This is a blend of power and refinement as the supporting tannins are admirably fine-grained.
