2018 Domaine Sylvain Cathiard Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Murgers" (Previously $420)

SKU #1544885 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This stony vineyard tends to produce one of Sébastien Cathiard's densest, plushest and most concentrated Premier Cru reds. The perfume is very engaging and enticing here, with violet and blackcurrant leaf scents leading you into a palate that is sweetly wooded in 60% new barrels, juicy and well balanced. The tannins are woven into the texture of the wine. Drinking Window 2024 - 2032. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 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. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A softly spicy and very earthy nose speaks of a layered mix of both red and dark fruit elements. There is a highly beguiling inner mouth perfume to the appealingly textured and slightly bigger flavors that are shaped by firm but relatively fine tannins on the velvety and sappy finish. This is presently quite seductive but the structure is sufficiently prominent that I suspect that this will close down after bottling and require at least some patience before it will again be approachable. Good stuff. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

94-96pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Compared to Aux Thorey, an earlier malolactic means a cleaner bouquet. The Murgers has a majorly intense black purple colour with noticeably ripe dark fruit, absolutely mouth filling. Black cherry this time, superb right across the palate, but intense with a welcome fresh energy and a very clean pure finish. Bravo."
