Wafting from the glass with aromas of cassis, red fruit compote, potpourri and smoked meats, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers is medium to full-bodied, gourmand and textural, with a deep core of fruit framed by rich structuring tannins and ripe acids. This is a dramatic but nicely balanced Murgers from Hudelot-Noellat. (WK)
An exceptionally ripe nose displays a port-like nuance on the spicy and earthy dark raspberry and cassis-suffused nose. There is better freshness on the palate along with excellent richness and concentration to the powerful and mouthcoating middle weight plus flavors that deliver fine length on the very firm finale. This is impressive in its fashion though it's a bit too ripe for me.
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Murgers 1er Cru is blessed with a lovely bouquet of black cherries and touches of cassis and briar. Gorgeous. The palate is fresh and citrus-y on the entry. Taut tannins and a little compactness toward the finish, almost as if this was closing up. All the pleasure is loaded on the front end of this Les Murgers. Hopefully it will gain more flesh and depth on the finish by the time of bottling. (NM)
Though the 2018 Murgers here is 13.8 percent octane, it is a very pure and plummy wine and is not particularly ripe in profile on either the nose or palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a primary, but very promising blend of plums, red and black cherries, cocoa powder, a lovely base of soil tones, vanillin oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied and nicely reserved out of the blocks, with a fine core of fruit, excellent balance and grip, buried tannins and a long, nascently complex and focused finish. This is going to be an excellent wine in due course. 91+
