The 1er Cru les Murgers (also called aux Murgers) takes its name from the walls in the immediate vicinity. It is considered to be one of the best vineyards in Nuits-Saint-Georges and produces elegant and profound wines that are similar to their northern neighbor Vosne-Romanée. Clive Coates M.W. Les Murgers is one of the five best locations in the northern part of Nuits.
The Decanter Magazine descripes the 2018 les Murgers: "Deep, impenetrable colour. Beautifully smooth on the palate with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity to keep everything in balance. Dark cherry and blueberry fruit on the palate. Subdued, subtle oak. There is a fresh touch of spice and black pepper on the palate which leads to a very long finish. An extremely elegant Nuits Saint Georges with lots of potential. 95/100."
