Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier

The lovely Audrey hosted us for this tasting. As ever, these were incredible wines.

Chambolle-Musigny 2008

Really sexy and seductive nose. Really silky palate. It is quite delicious even though it is a bit reduced.

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Fuees 2008

Seriously beautiful nose. Love that fruit. Love that style, too. Super elegant. Yeah!

Bonnes-Mares 2008

Really, really classy and stylish on the nose. Wehay! The palate is utterly, utterly beautiful. Totally charming. Oh, oh yes!

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Amoureuses 2008

Now this is really lovely. The nose… ah… the nose. I’m in love. The perfumed, silky character to the palate is utterly delicious. Great elegance. Hehehehehehehehehehe!

Musigny Grand Cru 2008

Malo not yet finished but it is still extravagantly fruity. The finish is incredible, wonderfully long. This us utterly ravishing and totally compelling.

Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Clos de la Marechale 2008

This is Nuits de chez Chambolle on the nose. The palate has really voluptuous fruit. It is really attractive, but still Nuits. The tannins are the clue here. The fruit is quite lovely, though.

Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Clos de la Marechale Blanc 2007

Toffee apple nose. Nice acidity and fruit on the palate. Pretty mineral, too. Yeah, good.

Chambolle-Musigny 2007

Properly attractive nose. Highly attractive palate, too. This is forward and fun, for drinking over the next few years.

Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Clos de la Marechale 2007

The fruit is really intense on the nose. A good mineral tang, too. Nuits tannins on the palate, but the fruit is just lovely. Nuits doesn’t get that much better.

Musigny Grand Cru 2007

An explosively exotic nose of fresh, complex fruit. There are few words to describe how wonderful this is, but I’ll try abso-tmesis-lutely freaking quadruple-A. The complexity! The class! The style! Wow!
