Robert Parker 92
Tasted blind at Flint Wines 2007/2012 Nuits Saint-Georges tasting in London. The 2012 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers from Lignier-Michelot has a clean and fresh bouquet with lifted candied red cherry, blackberry and subtle balsamic aromas that manage not to impinge upon the fruit, rather complement the aromatic profile. The palate is well balanced with sappy red berry fruit, quite grippy in the mouth, very well balanced and harmonious, with a touch of spice on the finish. This is developing very convincingly in bottle and it may even merit a higher score with continued bottle age. Tasted November 2016.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2035
