Nuits St Georges Aux Murgers Sylvain Cathiard 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: “The 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers has a very different nose to the Aux Thorey, a little more complexity here and less opulence, more black fruit here with blackberry and bilberry, a touch of dark plum. The palate is medium-bodied with a seductive, silky texture; the 60% new oak is seamlessly integrated, but this retains a killer sense of tension on the finish. Controlled power here, controlled power." Issue#222, 12/15. 90-93 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound:"Once again strong reduction flattens the underlying fruit. By contrast there is excellent size, weight and power to the muscular yet unusually refined flavors thanks to the fine-grained tannins that are dense enough to coat the palate on the impressively long if youthfully austere finale. This too is definitely going to require at least a modicum of patience and reward 12 to 15 years of cellaring. Note: from a .47 ha parcel of 65+ year old vines." Issue #61, 1/16. 90-92 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(60% new oak; cropped at 44 hectoliters per hectare): Deep red-ruby. Blackberry and dark chocolate aromas are lifted by a floral topnote. Not quite as dense as the Aux Thorey but juicy, spicy, minerally and firm--very much a Vosne-side Nuits. Finishes with terrific energy and a light touch, with a serious tannic spine that will require extended aging." 1/16.
