Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Aux Murgers Red 2019

Nuits-Saint-Georges "Aux Murgers" 1er crus - 2019

  • Production580 bottles and 12 magnums
  • PhilosophyOne of the main characteristics of Nuits-Saint-Georges’ wines lies in the great diversity of its terroirs, diversity that is found in the different styles of wines that vary greatly depending on where the grapes are grown. Based in Nuits-Saint-Georges, the House of Edouard Delaunay illustrates this multiplicity by offering several selections from Premier Cru climats located both north and south of the village.
  • TerroirLocated amid the Premier Cru vineyards north of Nuits-Saint-Georges, on the Vosne-Romanée side at the bottom of the slope (250 metres altitude), this east-facing plot boasts deep, marly, silt-laden soil, which allows the vines’ roots to plunge deep down. This characteristic is reflected in the wine whose profile is rich and profound, fleshy and spicy and features silky tannins.
  • Vinification and ageingThe grapes were handpicked at their peak of ripeness and brought quickly to the winery in small crates where they were meticulously sorted before a portion of them was destemmed (45% of the bunches of grapes are left in- tact). Once they were transferred to tanks, they began to ferment naturally under the influence of indigenous yeasts after a few days. Maceration lasted 3 weeks with daily punch-downs. After pressing, the young wine was barrel aged for 16 months (50% new oak) before being bottled.
  • Tasting notesGorgeous deep, dark colour. The first nose is powerful and redolent of blue fruit (blueberry, blackberry), cherry and blackcurrant. Subtle aromas of spices, thyme and menthol open up to notes of freshly cut wood and dried herbs. Beautiful start to the palate with f lavours of blackcurrant and blue fruit, along with sophisticated notes of wax and waxed wood. Then, fresh f lavours of spices (clove, pepper and juniper) surface. This is a very elegant wine boasting significant freshness and a classic, spicy structure due to its terroir.
