Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale (monopole) 1er Cru 2004

Mugnier Marechale 2004

9 h/a monopole in Prémeaux.  From 45 year old vines.  Freddy’s inaugural Maréchale after the lease expired with Faiveley.

Maturing ruby.  A wine of proportionality, as pretty as Prémeaux can be, still a bit of depth to burn.  Serene and ferny; piquant hedgerow fruit runs to elderberry and rose hip.  Finishes well, more lyric than complex but, above all, articulate.  A limpid Maréchale.  Drinking beautifully now.  Now – 2020.
