    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Jacques Frederic Mugnier, Nuits St Georges, Clos de La Maréchale, 1er Cru, 2005

    Racked and sulphured a week before being tasted but showing fabulously nonetheless. Intense black cherry and cherry stone flavours, powerful grip, lovely sweet fruit with a mouth-watering bitter twist, a concentrated thirst-quenching wine set in an impressive, sturdy framework.

    ABV:
    13%
    92/100
    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    Saturated red-ruby color. Pure, vibrant nose features smoky black cherry. Rich, sweet and pure, with superb energy to the flavors of black and red cherry and minerals. Impressively dense, broad wine, finishing with excellent lingering perfume and solid spine for aging. In comparison to this wine, the 2005 version seems a bit easier.

    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.
