Wine Critic Reviews for 2019 Alain Hudelot Noellat Nuit Saint Georges Murgers

This 0.68ha, domaine-owned parcel is in an early-ripening section near the base of the slope, which produced a wine with an inky dark colour and a profound nose of polished black fruit, a hint of smoke and no rustic side at all. The texture is silky, but flavours run deep and there is no lack of structure. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039.

Decanter | 93 DEC
(Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat Nuits St. Georges "Les Murgers" 1er Cru Red) Riper yet still quite fresh aromas consist mainly of plum liqueur, earth, spice elements and a whiff of the sauvage. The suave, round and solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess very good size, weight and power while delivering fine length on the balanced finale that is partially shaped by bright acidity. While there is clearly the requisite stuffing to reward extended keeping, this should also drink reasonably well young. (Drink starting 2031).

Burghound | 91-93 BH
Unwinding in the glass with aromas of raspberries, cherries, sweet spices, rose petals and forest floor, the 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and lively, with a deep, layered, elegantly muscular profile and a long, penetrating finish.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91-93+ RP
The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Murgers 1er Cru was the most backward on the nose among the domaine’s 2019s, delivering sultry black fruit, loam and touches of damp leaves. The palate is nicely structured, more muscular than the Au Bas de Combe, and displaying fine mineralité, although it needs to develop just a touch more sustain on the aftertaste. It will certainly need 3–4 years in bottle before it shows what it can do.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
