Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits St. Georges Les Chaignots 2015

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Chaignots, aged in 45% new oak but in different combination of cooperages to the Chambolle-Musigny cuvées, has a very intense bouquet with layers of cassis, blueberry and raspberry coulis, just a hint of orange blossom in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, a suggestion of game in the background, though it does not impose upon the copious sweet blue and black fruit. This is a more extravagant les Chaignots compared to recent vintages, but still utterly delectable.
