There are a few brilliant wines to chase after in Nuits-St-Georges and Jacques-Frederic Mugnier’s Clos de la Marchale 1er Cru is one of the top choices. This plot is a monopole that has been owned by the Mugnier family since 1902, and rented out temporarily to Joseph Faiveley from the 1950s til 2003; and the current owner Jacques-Frederic Mugnier decided to take back the vineyard from the 2004 harvest. The site produces both red and white, and the quality has been improved under Jacques-Frederic Mugnier's management in the past decade. Clos de la Maréchale is widely known to be a compelling wine, a premier cru with solid substance and complexity, it is routinely one of the best value red wines in Nuits-St-Georges.

Plums, tobacco and smoke are some of the notes that inform the 2011 Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de La Maréchale. Underlying veins of graphite and minerals give the 2011 much of its energy. I very much like the sense of contrasts here. At times, the Clos de La Maréchale is wild, while at others it oozes with polish and sophistication. Clos de La Maréchale remains the hidden jewel in Mugnier's range. Because of its relatively large production, it can often be found in the market at a reasonable price without too much effort.

An airy, cool and expressive nose exhibits a touch of herbal tea character on the high-toned red berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with soft earth and spice wisps. The sleek, supple and round middle weight flavors possess a lovely sense of vibrancy (though not the density of the 2012 or 2010) while concluding in a balanced and solidly persistent finish. To my taste this is still on the way up yet it's not so far away from its peak that it couldn't easily be enjoyed now.
