The 2016 'Aux Murgers' Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru is wonderful showing from Alain Hudelot-Noellat which seemed to defy all odds in this vintage. This begins with gorgeous aromatics of red berries, spices, florals and crushed stones all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this is beautifully balanced with notable inner-depth and a beautifully fresh, mineral-laced core. It continues to impress with its outstanding concentration and focus through the long, pretty finish. Overall, the 2016 'Aux Murgers' shows wonderful promise and looks to be a total success in this vintage.
