    Jacques Frederic Mugnier, Chambolle Musigny, Les Fuées, 1er Cru, 2017
    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées 1er Cru has a very pure, pastille-like bouquet of morello cherry mixed with crushed strawberry and dried rose petals – very elegant. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and tart red cherry fruit mixed with allspice and orange peel. A little dryness creeps in toward the finish, and there’s a bitter note on the aftertaste. I was surprised at this showing given my previous encounters. Bad showing on the day? Dodgy bottle? Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.

    Jacques Frederic Mugnier

    Created in 1863, this is a family estate run from the Château de Chambolle-Musigny. For years this was a miniscule four hectare Chambolle domaine, but since Frédéric Mugnier took back the family’s old Nuits St-Georges Monopole, Clos de la Maréchale, from Faiveley in 2004, the Domaine increased to 13 hectares. The aim is to produce wines that are each representative of their respective terroir and vintage, while at the same time having their individual character, wines of harmony and sincerity. This is achieved by eliminating weed-killers and industrial fertilisers in the vineyard; neither of these have been used for 10 years, whilst in the cellars all processes that traumatise the wine, over extraction, for example, or excessive woodiness, are limited to a minimum. To allow each terroir to express itself, the wine making is excatly the same for all of the wines. These are sensual, stylish Burgundies of great finesse.
