2006 Frédéric Mugnier NSG Clos de la Maréchale 1er Cru

(barrel sample) · The three wines from this vineyard are inky purple in color. Rich, deep and sappy black cherry aromas and flavors. Plenty of forbiding and drying tannins are obscuring the prodigious fruit core. Reviewed March 23, 2008 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2004 Frédéric Mugnier NSG Clos de la Maréchale 1er Cru

The green character in this wine brought on a lengthy discussion at the tasting. Mugnier noted that green notes do not detract from a wine in general if the greeness is in the flavors and does not extend to the tannins. Just how detracting this green character is will vary with the individual with some savoring the green accents and others finding it displeasing. Greeness or herbal characters can come and go in Burgundy and Mugnier has observed them to be most noticeable in the Spring. Stems are primarily responsible, but as the wine ages, the green characters dissipate and, according to Mugnier, disappear completely in wines over ten years of age. · A green note to the aromatics (grassy, new-mown hay). Fruit tends a little more toward red spectrum with cherry and cranberry evident. Slippery, but evident tannins. Reviewed March 23, 2008 WINERY » ARTICLE »
