Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Nuits Saint Georges Clos de la Marechale 2013


SKU 11202


The Clos de la Maréchale has a surface of 9 hectares, 76 ares. It is the largest monopole (an appellation belonging to a single owner) in the Côte d'Or. The average age of the vines in 2009 is about 45 years old. They are wines that always need 5 to 10 years of ageing before expressing their typically floral character The bouquet of the 1er crus of Premeaux is remarkable and persistent: one finds the aroma of iris mingled with raspberries. Even more so, that of white lilac.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale has a more tertiary, slightly austere bouquet than the Chambolle-Musigny Villages with subtle floral aromas developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and perhaps more structured than expected, with a dash of spice towards the finish that completes what is a wonderful Clos de la Maréchale from Frédéric Mugnier. Two words...load up.

BurghoundThis is also admirably pure but with much more earth influence on the bright mix of both red and black pinot fruit scents. There is a bit more volume to the beautifully textured medium-bodied flavors that display a sleek muscularity before terminating in a firm, mouth coating and well-balance finale. This should improve for up to a decade. 90-92
