    The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale Blanc 1er Cru has a fine resinous, honeysuckle scented bouquet that seems to wrap itself around your senses. The palate is well balanced with a waxy texture, veins of tropical fruit on the mid-palate and good density. I feel it would benefit from more length, but otherwise this is a very seductive white. Tasted at the Domaine.

    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.
