About

89-92

"The earth and sauvage components are notably prominent on the brooding plum, dark currant and lilac scents that are trimmed in noticeable wood. There is excellent size and weight to the velvety and concentrated medium weight flavors that display only mild rusticity on the beautifully persistent and firm finish that suggests this should reward mid to longer-term cellaring."

90-92 Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgey has a conservative bouquet, holding back with mulberry and briary aromas, a touch of undergrowth and tobacco. There was something almost Medocian about this Pinot Noir! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels tightly wound, clean and precise with a chalky-textured finish that finally suggests there is energy packed into this Nuits Saint Georges. Hopefully the aromatics will find their voice with bottle age."
