2016 Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat Nuits-St.-Georges 1er Cru "Murgers" (Previously $140)

SKU #1377858 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A brooding and all but mute nose requires aggressive swirling to reveal its notes of intensely earthy aromas of dark currant and raspberry where a background nuance of the sauvage appears. The rich, full-bodied, naturally sweet and lightly mineral-suffused flavors possess good freshness and a seductive texture before culminating in an impressively complex, driving and palate staining finish. This is more refined than it usually is yet a wine that doesn't lack for power and punch. In short, this excellent effort is promising but notably backward. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2016 Murgers chez Hudelot is an outstanding wine in the making, with the energy and sappy purity that is emblematic of the best 2016s that were untouched by the frost. The bouquet soars from the glass in a superb blend of black plums, black cherries, a touch of nutskin, a complex base of soil, pigeon, woodsmoke and a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very elegant for a young Nuits, with a sappy core, excellent transparency, suave, seamless tannins and a very long, poised and classy finish. Fine, fine juice. 92+ Inner quote mark (1/2018)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red with ruby highlights. Inky aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry pie, licorice, mint, violet and crushed stone. Juicy and penetrating but also showing lovely sweetness and thickness of texture--and finer-grained than the Petits Vougeot. Still a bit reduced and gassy, as the malolactic fermentation only ended in late September. But this wine already displays lovely acidity and mid-palate definition and finishes with suave tannins and sneaky rising length. Quite perfumed on the aftertaste; very much a Vosne style of Nuits.

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Nuits Murgers offers up brooding aromas of cocoa, wild dark fruits, grilled meat and a framing of oak vanillin. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and rich, with a fine but firm chassis of tannins and a sweet core of fruit. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2017)
