Nuits Saint Georges Clos de la Marechale 2014 (Magnum)Mugnier J.F.
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Marechale from Jacques-Frederic Mugnier showed just a touch of volatile acidity on the nose but nothing to get too worried about. It just renders the aromatics more feisty and perhaps more feral than its peers, and after ten minutes there is a touch of unwanted brettanomyces coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, plenty of lively and quite tensile red fruit that leads to a linear, slightly conservative finish that just needs to gain more flesh and personality.
Big and bold ? already expressive. Tight and dense. Very sappy. Exciting. Lots of personality, bravo!?
