Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale (monopole) 1er Cru 2006

Mugnier Marechale 2005

Ten years on.

Bright ruby.   Two years in and you can see the progress Freddy is making.  The Faiveley Maréchale was raised by wolves; in Freddy’s hands this cuvée unfurls with a more refined carriage.  Woodland fruit and spicy smoke in the juicy primed style of the best ’06s.   Mineral and articulate at the end; not a blatant Nuits.  Now – 2020+.
