Nuits-St.-Georges Premier Cru " Meurgers "
The name " Meurgers " refers to stone walls made from piling rocks from the vineyards along their borders. This plot of Nuits-St.-Georges premier cru lies between Vosne and the village of Nuits. It is well-exposed and the old vines are planted in thin soils.
1987: Although the buds arrived early in 1987, the flowers arrived late due to difficult weather, limiting yield. The summer alternated wet and dry weather, but the year was saved by a beautiful September and top domaines produced beautiful, fresh wines that are still charming and youthful.
