95 Decanter

"This stony vineyard tends to produce one of Sébastien Cathiard's densest, plushest and most concentrated Premier Cru reds. The perfume is very engaging and enticing here, with violet and blackcurrant leaf scents leading you into a palate that is sweetly wooded in 60% new barrels, juicy and well balanced. The tannins are woven into the texture of the wine. Drinking Window 2024 - 2032."

92-94 Vinous

"The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Murgers 1er Cru is more expressive on the nose compared to the Aux Thorey, with sumptuous fruit: cassis, blueberry and raspberry preserve, plus hints of fresh fig in the background. This is an NSG that wants to be noticed. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins and a fine line of acidity. Quite structured, with a dense, rigid finish that (unlike the nose) suggests this should be cellared for several years. Impressive."

91-93 Burghound

"A softly spicy and very earthy nose speaks of a layered mix of both red and dark fruit elements. There is a highly beguiling inner mouth perfume to the appealingly textured and slightly bigger flavors that are shaped by firm but relatively fine tannins on the velvety and sappy finish. This is presently quite seductive but the structure is sufficiently prominent that I suspect that this will close down after bottling and require at least some patience before it will again be approachable. Good stuff."
