Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits St. Georges Les Chaignots 2014
“….in my opinion, the wines of Mugneret-Gibourg epitomize everything one could desire in Pinot Noir….They just know how to make pure, effortless, delineated, tensile, terroir-driven wine that is not just complex and thought-provoking, but just delicious to drink. That’s the trouble tasting here. You just want to grab as many bottles from their bins as you can, flee out of the door yelling, “I don’t care…call the gendarmes…at least I’ve got my Ruchottes-Chambertin.” - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Chaignots, matured in 50% new oak, has a charming bouquet with vibrant red cherries and orange sorbet notes, already so full of life and generous. The palate is crisp on the entry, tensile and focused, not a huge depth here but lively and full of nervosité. I think it will fill out a little by the time of bottling and settle at the top of my banded score.
