Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2015 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers is very promising, opening in the glass with notes of smoked duck, sweet cherry and peony. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and elegant, with a deep core of ripe fruit, juicy acids and an ample chassis of fine-grained tannins that is beginning to assert itself on the finish. Forget this for the better part of a decade, then reap the rewards.Author: William Kelley
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
