About this Item

2011 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale
2 (1 x 2) 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

‘Light and gentle and easy and well balanced. All about restraint. Lots of juicy fruit but very subtle. Not cheap though!’ - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Jan 2013)

‘This vineyard is a monopole of nearly 10ha in Premeaux-Prissey, at the very bottom of the Côte, just before Comblanchien. Although this section has a reputation for rustic wines, Frédéric Mugnier’s winemaking has worked wonders here, with the destemmed fruit and gentle extraction producing a wine with an almost ethereal fruit, and just a hint of 'good bitterness'. Marvellously complex and capable of ageing. Drinking Window 2024 – 2039.’ - Charles Curtis MW, Decanter.com, 92/100 (Oct 2020)

‘The 2011 Nuits St. Georges Clos de Marechale (red) has a wonderful bouquet with brambly black and red fruit, a touch of truffle and a scent of the sea. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins – unassuming at first, but building in the mouth toward a structured, focused, almost symmetrical finish that delivers a long, satisfying, lightly peppered aftertaste that is classic in style. Excellent. Drink 2015-2025+.’ - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 91/100 (Oct 2013)
