2009 NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES, 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale, JF Mugnier
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: This famous Clos was owned by the Mugnier family since 1902 but the grapes were taken, under a share-cropping agreement, by the merchant house of Faiveley, until 2003. Overnight the Mugnier estate grew from 4 to 14 hectares.
It's the largest single-owned 'Clos' in the region, and is right at the edge of the NSG appellation, bordering Chambolle Musigny
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir aged in new oak barrels (from Allier and Nevers)
Vintage: 2009 A good year, just coming into its own now
Old Bridge Rating: High quality for the vintage. Plenty of richness but, as usual with Muginer, there is some of the gentleness of Chambolle Musigny balancing the power of the 'Nuits' style
