($182) Bright red-ruby. Cool, slightly inky aromas of blackberry liqueur and black cherry; slightly high-toned. Offers powerful black cherry, crushed berry and mineral flavors sexed up by the uncanny sweetness of the vintage. Very long and strong on the end, but the substantial tannins are supple. Here's a vintage in which this wine is markedly different from the rest of the cellar, and clearly identifiable as coming from Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89-91

The Mugnier family's sprawling, gently-sloping 24-acre monopole just south of Premeaux-Prissey (managed and vinified by Faiveley until 2004) presents Frederic Mugnier with significant challenges. A small but symptomatic question is where to put it in the tasting line-up. Mugnier has decided to let it stand on its own at the end, a gutsy decision, but in the case of the 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Clos de la Marechale justified in the glass. The sheer volume of wine from these vines of forty years' average age requires not just the new larger cellar, but its own strategy of assemblage (from 2004 Mugnier bottled a second wine; in 2005 there were eight initial lots), as well as marketing. But at least here's one worthy 2005 Burgundy lovers stand a good chance of locating! What was virtually certain at the time of my visit to be the final assemblage of 2005 Clos de la Marechale offered aromas of red raspberry and smoked meats. In the mouth, effusively sweet, ripe, but very primary fruit flavors struggle to override the abundant, firm tannins and mingle with a tactile chalk dust minerality as though the nearby quarries were directly responsible. This is another Mugnier 2005 of palpably high extract, but this time with a sense of weight that does not accrue to the Chambolles. A salty, meaty side to this emerges most prominently in the long finish. Better post-assemblage integration may come soon, and more personality after a few years in bottle - certainly the invigoratingly fresh-fruited 2004 is a complete, distinct and satisfying wine today - but any prognostication would be premature since there is as yet no track record for this site in its owner's hands.

Much more raw than the 2004. Difficult to penetrate on the nose but very flattering and mild and almost malty on the palate. Lots of lively fruit with real direction and verve. Lots of extract. Very long. Promises very well for the future. Such persistence!

This has tasty dark pinot fruit and lots of it. The wood is nicely balanced with the fruit and the wine hs good acidity and a long dry finsih. Still young but it promises to be a blockbuster as it ages.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
