This is a rare bird – the second wine from Clos de la Maréchale – Clos des Fourches – made only in the years 2004,2006, 2007 and 2008. The 2007 edition is surprisingly substantial given both it’s level and especially the vintage. The nose offer deep red and darkberry fruit powered by a nice deep earthy minerality. On the palate surprising weight and somehow a darker fruit than expected – have not tasted Maréchale 2007 in years though. It’s a very robust and intense 2007 – rather unevolved – but yet with the Mugnier finesse. Many 2007s are unfolding beautifully now with forward red fruit – this I would prefer to cellar for 5 years to let it unfold its Mugnier magic.

- Vineyard Insight: Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses is the delight of Burgundy … filigree, sensual, cool and refined. The female pendant to Musigny with the same type of regal minerality – yet more delicate and lightfooted – without the sheer power and depth of the mighty Musigny. By heart it’s a 1er cru – and while many argue that it ...
- Terroir Insight: Domaine Mugnier Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses Les Amoureuses …. a name signaling passion and desire. It’s one of the most sought after wines in Burgundy – indeed difficult to find despite a quite healthy production from the multiple owners and quite a few negociants that also produce this seductive Chambolle 1er cru. One of the top interpretations of Les Amoureuses comes from ...
- Visit Domaine J.-F. Mugnier – tasting of the 2015 vintage It’s always a special experience to visit Domaine J.-F. Mugnier in Chambolle Musigny. The wines are magnificent, and Frédéric Mugnier is one of the most interesting people in Burgundy – with some very clear views and perspectives on the world of Burgundy. There is however a challenge – as rating the wines at this stage is ...
- 2015 impressions – the two last days of a lovely week On the last two days of my Burgundy trip I had five tastings. Domaine Faiveley, Domaine Pascal Bouley, Maison Camille Giroud, Domaine des Croix and last but not least Domaine J.-F. Mugnier in Chambolle Musigny. All visits offered lovely 2015s .. confirming the findings from the tastings done earlier on the week. Again please note .. ...
- Vineyard Insight: Musigny – ownership maps Musigny is in my view one of the greatest Grand Crus in Burgundy rivalling at least some of the Grand Crus of Vosne-Romanee. While Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is the dominant owner on Musigny with almost 70% of the vineyard, the rest of the vineyard is divided between 10 owners. The Musigny Grand Cru has ...
- Clos de la Maréchale – The largest monopole in Burgundy Clos de la Maréchale is a Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru and the largest monopole in Burgundy … surpassing both Clos de Tart and Clos des Lambrays in Morey-Saint-Denis. During many years Clos de la Maréchale was under the radar of many Burgundy collectors, but when Frédéric Mugnier of Domaine J.-F. Mugnier took over the vinification it ...
- Mugnier to hold back Musigny for maturing at the domaine Frédéric Mugnier has decided to hold back his Musigny for later release in order to assure that the wines are first enjoyed when they begin to show at least some of the potential. The letter from Frederic Mugnier can be seen below … and is well worth reading. I have seen quite many interpretations of Frédéric Mugniers ...
- Terroir Insight: Domaine J.-F. Mugnier Musigny Frédéric Mugnier is in my view producing some of the most enchanting wines of Burgundy – delicate, complex and sensual. Top of the Mugnier line is the mighty Musigny, so lets take a closer look at the terroir behind this magnificent wine. Photo: Frédéric Mugnier in 2013 at the tasting of the 2012 vintage from cask The Mugnier ...
- Tasting of Domaine J.-F. Mugnier 2012 from Cask On my September trip to Burgundy I had the priviledge to visit Domaine J.-F. Mugnier for the first time. I have always enjoyed and adored the Mugnier wines, as they represent what I like in Burgundy – refinement, terroir and pleasure – so I was very exited to get the opportunity to taste the wines ...
- WineHog rating system – more than points Tasting and rating wine is not exact science … and therefore I prefer to use a scale that reflects that wine is a living organism and that a wine can taste like 94 points one day … and 93 the next day … depending on the moon, the glass, temperature and or my mood! I ...
