Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits St. Georges Les Chaignots 2013
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
|Brand||Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg|
Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Chaignots has a menthol-tinged bouquet that feels a little ostentatious (not a word I associate with this domaine's wines). It does come out of its shell with aeration, manifesting more refinement and offers an attractive orange blossom, almost honeyed note later on. The palate is supple on the mouth with strawberry pastilles taking center stage, the acidity nicely judged albeit missing complexity on the fleshy and easy-going finish. As always, I adore the elegance of Mugneret-Gibourg's wine, though it does not possess the density of other recent vintages. Tasted September 2016.
