2018 Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier '1er Cru Clos de la Marechale' Rouge Nuits-St-George
Winemaker Notes: Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier Nuits-St-Georges Clos de la Marechale Premier Cru is a wine that always needs 5 to 10 years of aging before expressing its typically floral character. The bouquet is remarkable and persistent. One finds the aroma of iris mingled with raspberries. Even more so, that of white lilac.
Vinous - "The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale 1er Cru was tasted from a blend of five cuvées. It has an attractive bouquet of mainly black fruit laced with black tea and bay leaf notes, plus touches of rose petal in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, tending more toward a red fruit profile, with wonderful salinity on the finish. Good potential. Excellent."
Jancis Robinson - 17/20 - "Cask sample. Rich black fruit with a tarry note on the nose that could fool you into thinking this was Nebbiolo rather than Pinot. Wonderfully fragrant palate with a vegetal note that leaves a lengthy and satisfying aftertaste, finishing with a final flourish of juniper-berry bitterness."
