|Region||France, Burgundy, Nuits-Saint-Georges|

The bouquet is remarkable and persistent. Aromas of iris mingled with raspberries and white lilac.
Aromas of raspberries and cherries mingled with sweet soil tones, rose petals and blood orange introduce Mugnier's 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale. A medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated wine framed by powdery tannins and lively acids, it concludes with an elegantly chalky finish.
The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de la Marechale 1er Cru has a lovely dark plummy bouquet, kirsch and a touch of liquorice, perhaps a little surmaturite. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, black cherries, hints of peppermint with a cassis finish. Maybe this just doesn't quite deliver the persistency that I anticipated when I tasted this from barrel.
