Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Nuits Saint Georges Clos de la Marechale 2015 375ml


SKU 11363


Le Clos de la Marechale presents the frankness, uprightness and solidity of the Nuits-Saint-Georges wines, but without the austerity and rough tannins of the young wines from the central Nuits sector. These are wines that require a few years of aging before liberating themselves, but they develop a typical floral character tinged, it seems, with raspberry, iris and white lilac.

Wine AdvocateFrédéric Mugnier meticulously assembled the five cuvées that combine to make the 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale, the famed monopole at the southern end of the appellation. It has a bright raspberry and cranberry-scented bouquet, just a hint of pomegranate in the background, lively and transparent. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin in the mouth. This seems to be a more structured Clos de Maréchale with a sappy and slightly compact finish. Give this 3-4 years in bottle if you can. It's one of those cuvées that I often find is being consumed too young, whereas it does repay bottle age.
