2018 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers, Sylvain Cathiard

Aux Murgers is close to the border with Vosne, and has some of that appellation’s signature elegance. Half the vines are 70 years old, the other half 50+. Dark berries and tons of salinity here, this is a mineral, dark yet expressive Nuits. Silky tannins define the finish. Beautiful.

2018 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers, Sylvain Cathiard
Domaine Sylvain Cathiard

Arranging a visit to see Sébastien Cathiard can be tricky: this is a domaine where the wines come first, before commercial considerations. But this care pays dividends, with his perfectly-kept, airy cellar giving something of an insight into the wines of this much-prized domaine. It became one of Burgundy’s most in-demand addresses under Sébastien’s father, Sylvain, during the 1990s and having taken over in 2010 Sébastien has further raised its reputation.
