Sumptuous Burgundy from Mugnier

Nick Jackson, MW Consultant | December 23, 2021

Jewel-like Pinot Noir

The Clos de la Marechale is one of Burgundy’s most easily spotted sites: a walled vineyard, right off the main road on the southern approach to Nuits-St-Georges. A monopole of JF Mugnier, Marechale offers classic Burgundy with all the elegance typical of Mugnier’s wines. 

If you are not familiar yet with Mugnier, he makes some of Burgundy’s most perfectly sculpted, jewel-like expressions of Pinot Noir. Where Nuits-St-Georges is occasionally considered rugged or rustic, in Mugnier’s hands, here it is ethereal and luminous. And the small amount of white the vineyard produces is also well worth exploring: crisp and bright yet with rich fruit.
