Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Nuits St Georges Clos De La Marechale Blanc 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale Blanc unfurls in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, wet stones and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a satiny, textural attack, a deep but open-knit mid-palate and considerable chewy extract, concluding with a stony finish. Mugnier lost 60% of his crop to frost this year, and the resulting wine is paradoxical, with a fleshy, low-acid profile yet a decidedly cool-vintage character. It will always be an atypical vintage of the Clos de la Maréchale Blanc.
