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.||Before I commence a discussion of the wines, anyone fortunate enough to be granted an audience chez Mugnier should pause in the hallway to admire the original advertising posters up the stairwell. They are a reminder of the long history of the estate, its central place within Burgundy and of course, the artistry of advertising wine that would doubtlessly by frowned upon by the anti-alcohol lobby in France in this pious day and age! ||I discussed the growing season with Frédéric Mugnier in his office before descending to the cellar. “Fortunately, we did not suffer a lot of maladies in the early season but there was a lot of rain in July through until September and this extended the vegetative cycle. We commenced the harvest on 5 October in Clos de la Maréchale and picked over four or five days. We cropped in Chambolle on 7 and 8 October since there was rapid development of pourriture, so we had a small window of picking. We finally finished on 11 or 12 October with natural alcohol levels around 12 degrees and the yields were around 20hl/ha instead of around 31hl/ha. We did the same vinification as normal: we did not want to compromise the character of the vintage. We chaptalized so that final alcohol level was between 12.5 and 13.0 degrees but you know, it’s funny, because we use less sugar now than 20 years ago when we had just 4 hectares! The malolactics finished around late summer and we racked last November. There was a spectacular change in the wine after the malolactics: they became much rounder. The 2013 should be bottled around May.” I asked Frédéric if he could sum up his wines. “The 2013 vintage has a very original unique style with strong acidity,” he replied.||As I reported last year, I feel that Frédéric has, for want of a better expression, “found his groove” at the domaine, fashioning a style of wine that he feels comfortable with and expresses the terroir in a natural uncompromising fashion. That is manifested in a quite brilliant Nuits Saint Georges Clos de la Maréchale ’13: one of the most elegant and precise that I have tasted since he retook the vineyard from Bouchard. The Chambolle Amoureuses ’13 is divine as you would expect and I much preferred this to the one possible weak link: the Bonnes-Mares ’13. Whereas many other examples from this grand cru excelled in this challenging vintage, Mugnier’s appeared rather over-awed by both the Musigny and the Amoureuses and was missing some conviction, some of the bravura one seeks in such an respected name. As for the Musigny Vieilles Vignes, it was subtle at first but unfurled gloriously in the glass, not a powerful or intense Musigny, but crystalline and almost nonchalant in terms of its grace.| eRobertParker.com.January, 2015
