Interesting. The wine is delicious, with rich and ripe fruit, almost roasty, it is well balanced and with a great mouth feel and with good intensity and depth. There is a prominent oak influence, but it does not intrude on the wine's fruit expression or make the structure feel too hard. It's well made and good wine. Musky, in a good way. The problem, for me - and it is a style issue, not a quality issue, is that I don't find the wine to express anything in terms of terroir. There is nothing in here that speaks to me of Nuits St George, not the way you find In the north-of-the-village Chevillon wines or Gouges, for example. Stylistically, this is not my thing.
Just perfect drinking now. While an off vintage,this wine has evolved to the place place where burgundy wants to be: aged red fruits, especially strawberry and raspberry, dried leaves ,paler red color with a hint of tawny overtones; a long finish with sophisticated nervy red currant and raspberry veins, and a perfume of the Nuits St Georges that rarely emerges early.
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.
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
