There are a few brilliant wines to chase after in Nuit-St-Georges and Jacques-Frederic Mugnier’s Clos de la Marchale 1er Cru is one of our top choices. This is a monopole which has been owned by the Mugnier family since 1902. Between 1950s til 2003, the plot was rented out to Joseph Faiveley, then later from the 2004 harvest, the current owner Jacques-Frederic Mugnier decided to take back the vineyard. History aside, the site produces both red and white, and quality has improved over the years under Jacques-Frederic Mugnier management. According to Jasper Morris MW, “The fruits is now much more apparent, the tannins altogether more gentle”. From an excellent vintage such as 2009, this is a fantastic option for buyers who look for incredible value reds from Burgundy. Allen Meadows said, ”the '09 is excellent nonetheless”, while Galloni was not shy to show his appreciation for this wine, describing it to be “drop-dead gorgeous. Clos de la Marechale is another of my go-to wines”.

92pts Allen Meadows An overtly ripe yet agreeably fresh nose mixes notes of spice, plum, earth and black cherry. The rich, velvety and opulent medium weight plus flavors are still notably youthful and muscular yet the abundant sap buffers the moderately firm tannic spine on the delicious, lengthy and ever-so-slightly warm finale. This is also still very much on the way up and while the excellent level of dry extract would allow this to be enjoyed now, I would again be inclined to allow it another few years of cellaring first. This isn't classic and stylistically I prefer the 2010 but with that said, the '09 is excellent nonetheless.
92pts Antonio Galloni Mugnier’s 2009 Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de la Marechale was drop-dead gorgeous. Clos de la Marechale is another of my go-to wines, as it is readily available (by Burgundian standards) and rarely excessively marked up on restaurant lists. The 2009 was ripe, open and seductive. Although very much in the style of the year, the Clos de la Marechale also showed plenty of structure in support of the radiant, expressive fruit. Readers fortunate enough to own the 2009 can look forward to a broad and long drinking window.
