Nuits Saint Georges Clos de la Marechale 2013 (Magnum)Mugnier J.F.
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2013 Nuit Saint Georges Clos de la Maréchale has a blackberry and boysenberry-scented bouquet that gains intensity with every swirl of the glass. The palate is compact and precise with taut, slightly obdurate tannins at first, but plenty of freshness. Quite masculine, this Nuits Saint Georges will deserves three or four years in bottle. One of the best offerings from this monopole in recent vintages.
Terrific depth and focus on the nose: blackberry fruit on Nuits seen through the delicate aromatic prism of Chambolle. The palate is a bit pinched and inky in comparison ? I?d hoped for more after the nose. This seriously needs to loosen up.
