About this Item

Musigny, 2011
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier was founded in 1863 by Frédéric Mugnier’s great-great-grandfather. In 1985, Frederic – a fifth generation Mugnier – took over, and somehow managed to combine the running of the property with his job as an airline pilot. He now focuses his efforts solely on winemaking. The estate is renowned for its Chambolle-Musigny and is the second largest owner in Musigny.

Critics Ratings

‘A little darker than the rest. Gamey nose (nothing to do with reduction). Juice and freshness and intensity and real life and savour. Quite firm fine tannins underneath but masses of mind-blowing elegant fruit. Sinewy. All in the same register as the village wine. A gold-standard wine. But some will find it tight at this stage.’ - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 19/20 (Nov 2012)

‘The 2011 Musigny Grand Cru has a fragrant, floral, understated bouquet that is beautifully defined and focused. With time in the glass it offers subtle forest floor and damp soil scents that merely add to its complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins and exquisite balance. It tiptoes across the senses rather than delivering a payload of flavors, while the finish offers extraordinary precision and nuance. It is a long-term wine of immense density – deceptively so.’ - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 95/100 (Oct 2013)

‘Incredibly perfumed, seductive nose: violets, jasmine, sweet spices, red berry fruits. Long finish. Complete, complex and approachable.’ - Jeannie Cho Lee MW, Decanter.com, 93/100 (May 2013)
