 Tasted by bevetroppo on 3/29/2015 & rated 92 points: Day later from memory. Soaring nose with dark red and black fruits, seemed almost more Vosne in character on first impression. I wasn't sure so I checked and was pleased to confirm that Murgers is on the northern side of NSG and not too far from the corner of Vosne. Rather be lucky than good.

A real mouthful of wine, bold, a touch rustic, sweet ripe fruit again with hints of earth and mushroom. Beautiful now with no obvious end in sight. (418 views)
 Tasted by macker100 on 1/12/2015 & rated 90 points: Musky blackberries on nose. Very plummy with touches of spice. Solid '04. (409 views)
 Tasted by JonAllen on 8/3/2014 & rated 89 points: had over two nights, this wine wasn't bad or off-putting but it just wasn't pleasing, there was some density to it (i.e. it wasn't light or watery), fruit was there in the background - mostly red as best i could tell, but there was a strange (wood spice?) flavor profile that just wasn't enjoyable, not quite the "green monster" stuff u often get with '04 burgs but could have been a cousin thereof (899 views)
 Tasted by Cote d'Or on 3/28/2014: Friday tasting, PopnPour tasted over an hour
-semi-translucent med red with some early browning
-very expressive and pretty aromatics, fresh, stemmy, minimal green
-med acidity, spicy darker red fruits of med concentration/weight along with some earthy mature elements, moderately complex and long with touch of oak, dried out tannins
-overall excellent, not overly affected with pyrazines but concerning that tannins are so dried out, would drink sooner than later (1053 views)
 Tasted by Morten Overwien Sletten on 12/7/2013: Jeg luftet ikke vinen, men helte godsakene rett opp i glasset. Vinen hadde ganske høy aromaintensitet. Rød frukt danset ut av glasset. Bringebær, jordbær og etter hvert lyse, syltede kirsebær. Litt fattoner og florale toner som er med på å definere begrepet feminin vin. Fantastisk vin, tenkte jeg. Og jeg hadde ennå ikke smakt på den. Høy smaksintensitet i en frisk vin med moden og integrert tanninstruktur. Sursøte kirsebær og igjen røde bær som bringebær og jordbær. Her dukket også noen urtetoner som kan linkes til årgangen. Det var kun sjarmerende i en vin der ettersmaken varte så lenge, at man ble sulten mellom hver matbit. En meget flott 2004 premier cru og god ambassør for å fylle opp kjelleren med vin fra Burgund.

 Tasted by St Paul on 2/11/2012 & rated 93 points: I love Cathiard! This is pure fruit and minerality with young red fruit that is fresh and just lovely. The Pinot spice is there and it is very generic but not at all green the way many 04's are. I am tempted to give it even higher rating. It is one of the best NSG wines I ever had. It is very Vosne like I think. I guess that is Cathiards winemaking. Ok the super length is not there but I rather take the freshness and complexity. (2597 views)
 Tasted by St Paul on 12/27/2011 & rated 92 points: Beautiful and elegant. Soft in the mouth. Easy drinking with a round finish. Not at all green the way many 04´s are. It has not got the complex deep fruit but thats what i like with this vintage. Fresh and lovely. I can down a bottle like this in 10 minutes. (2695 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 5/11/2011: Understanding Vineyards by Their Names (Bouilland, Burgundy): Tasting, brief note. Modest red fruit on nose and palate with baking spice hints. Not exactly sure the extent this shows "Murgers" character (intent of tasting), but this certainly shows 2004 character with a slightly rough, green edge on finish. (1023 views)
 Tasted by bevetroppo on 4/8/2011 & rated 91 points: Five days later from memory. From a case procured at auction. Easily the best $32 bottle of wine I've ever had, reeking of flavor, class and character. I stuck it in a suitcase and brought it on a business trip to Florida since I knew I was in for the Woodbridge Circuit. No more detailed notes given the gap, but I'm soooo happy to have scored this. Makes up for half a dozen auction mistakes. Better notes from the next bottle. (2474 views)
 Tasted by brooklynguy on 8/24/2010: better over the days following initial opening - too young for now. it comes off as simple and big, to me anyway. on day three there is more definition and a stronger sense of the substance of the wine. darkly fruited and earthy, with some spice in the back end. potential is there - interested to check back in time - a while though. 8 years? (2601 views)
 Tasted by Keith Levenberg on 8/23/2010 & rated 91 points: 2004 Red Burgundies (Brooklyn): Very impressive. A strong stony scent, then sweet and sappy on the palate, and enveloping too. Has a bit of an acidic (?) snap to it and a woodiness sort of reminiscent of cedar and old cabinetry. An intense style but a complete wine - in retrospect this probably would have been a more natural partner to the Mugneret-Gibourg Chaignots than the Chevillon Chaignots was. (3864 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
