2006 Nuits St Georges, 1er Cru Clos de la Marachele, Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier (12 x Bottle)

France Burgundy Nuits

(this is a 9.55-hectare monopole; Mugnier vinified nine cuvees but showed me a blend of seven of them, as the other two will probably be declassified into his second wine, Clos des Fourches) Good bright ruby-red. Complex, inviting nose offers blackberry, mocha, brown spices and sexy oak tones. Juicy and sweet, with very good inner-mouth energy but nicely supple tannins considering the wine s firm acids and the fact that it s from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Mugnier echoed my sentiment when he noted that this year, the Chambolles seem unusually structured, and this seems more Chambolle-like.
