The tradition of Clos de la Maréchale's white wine was lost during the last 50 years, but several exceptional old bottles found buried in the cellar convinced us to revive this rare wine. Thus the Clos de la Maréchale exists in two colours since the 2005 vintage.

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.
