Domaine Jacques Frederic Mugnier Nuits Saint Georges Clos de la Marechale 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Nuits-Saint-Georges|
|Brand||Domaine Jacques Frederic Mugnier|
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.
