Lots of wood in this brooding, dark-colored Burgundy. Plenty of plum, chestnut and currant flavors, full body, a fresh core and solid tannins. Try in 1999.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Nuits-St.-Georges, Aux Murgers

Aux Mergers is a 12.2-acre vineyard in the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote-de-Nuits. It is near the northern boundary of Nuits-Saints-Georges, at an average elevation of 270 meters. The soil is limestone, quite a bit of gravel and some sand. Wine writers note that the wines from these northern Nuits-Saint-Georges vineyards have a hint of Vosne about them, since they are so close to the Vosne-Romanee appellation. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
