2019 Hudelot-Noellat Nuits St Georges Les Murgers Premier Cru
Riper yet still quite fresh aromas consist mainly of plum liqueur, earth, spice elements and a whiff of the sauvage. The suave, round and solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess very good size, weight and power while delivering fine length on the balanced finale that is partially shaped by bright acidity. While there is clearly the requisite stuffing to reward extended keeping, this should also drink reasonably well young. Drink 2031+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Unwinding in the glass with aromas of raspberries, cherries, sweet spices, rose petals and forest floor, the 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and lively, with a deep, layered, elegantly muscular profile and a long, penetrating finish.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Murgers 1er Cru was the most backward on the nose among the domaine’s 2019s, delivering sultry black fruit, loam and touches of damp leaves. The palate is nicely structured, more muscular than the Au Bas de Combe, and displaying fine mineralité, although it needs to develop just a touch more sustain on the aftertaste. It will certainly need 3–4 years in bottle before it shows what it can do. Drink 2023 - 2036.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Extra deep rich dark purple. The nose is completely power packed, but in balance, very inky with some blackberry notes. On the one hand this is at the limit of maximum ripeness before toppling over, on the other there is a notably long finish. I shall be cautious.
