Domaine Sylvain Cathiard Premier Cru, Aux Murgers 2008
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Burgundy Red
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Deep, bright red-ruby. Captivating mineral lift to the aromas of black fruits and spices; I might have picked this as coming from Vosne. Fresh, balanced and sharply delineated, with intense dark fruit flavors enlivened by a floral element. Finishes long and vibrant, with very suave tannins. These 65-year-old vines are the estate's oldest, along with their Romanee-Saint-Vivant. 92+ Points. Tasted March 2010. Stephan Tanzer. Vinous.
