    (($120-$170) this was made solely from the estate's old vines; the recently replanted portion of the Mugnerets' holding will not go into this cuvee for at least a few more years): Medium red. Knockout nose combines red berries, smoke, game and red licorice. Silky-sweet and seductive, with lovely subtle intensity of flavor. Velvety but not at all weighty, in the manner of the best Burgundies. Finishes with superb building sweetness and wonderfully subtle, persistent soil tones.

    Very strong oak spice dominates the nose, relegating the earthy, truffle-infused aromas to the background. The flavors are wonderfully complex, sweet, delicious and deep with impeccable balance and outstanding length but the wood is awfully strong. The Mugneret wines are almost never oaky and thus this wine deserves the benefit of doubt based on its track record and it will be interesting to revisit it in bottle next year.
