Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Nuits Saint Georges Clos de la Marechale 2017
At the beginning of the 20th century, this estate founded in 1863 by Frédéric Mugnier, a liquor-maker in Dijon, included nearly twenty hectares of the best vineyards spread over Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-Saint-Georges. In 1950, following the economic crisis of the 1930s and the world war, Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, great-grandson of the first Frédéric, chose to sell the liquor business, and lease the vineyard out to a negociant in Nuits-Saint-Georges. The contract on the Chambolle vineyard ended in 1978 and 6 years later Frédéric Mugnier, son of Jacques-Frédéric, assumed full responsibility for the family estate.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale is a little more introverted after its recent bottling, unwinding in the glass with a reticent bouquet of red berries, raw cocoa, sweet soil tones and dried flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with good depth at the core and a more structured, introverted profile than the Chambolle that preceded it. The missing ingredient here is a little time.
VinousThe 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale 1er Cru has a delightful bouquet of raspberry, crushed strawberry and rose petal aromas. The palate seems pliable in the mouth, featuring pure red fruit laced with brown spices and a saline finish that feels precise. Excellent.
