Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits St. Georges Les Chaignots 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
|Brand||Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots was matured in 50% new oak, and the vineyard was heavily damaged by frost. Normally there are 26 barrels, and this year there are 18 barrels. It has a deeper and more complex bouquet than the Vignes Rondes, with pure black cherries, blueberry and subtle violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth texture, perfectly judged acidity, harmonious and pure, with black cherries, strawberry pastilles and a fine vein of minerals toward the finish. Superb.
