January 18, 2015 - Tasted along with the 2005 and 2007. Moderate funk and sour red fruit on a fairly tight nose. On the palate, this shows as bordering on under ripe and not very concentrated. Slightly chalky toward the back, showing good tannic energy, perhaps my favorite quality of this wine. Unfortunately it flattens out, and comes up short on the finish. Placed 3rd of the 3 vintages for me.
November 26, 2014 - Perfumed pinot aromas with some oak. Soft and lovely in the mouth. A bit weak acidity.
November 9, 2014 - Knightsbridge Annual Holiday Burgundy/Champagne Tasting and Sale (Northbrook, IL): Tasting, brief note. Red and black cherry with some licorice and thyme. Drinking well now.
September 2, 2014 - Bouquet of leather and licorice. Flavorful red berry taste on the palate. Above average texture. Smooth slightly tannic finish. Above average QPR.
July 7, 2014 - Slight bubble gum, dark red fruit. Good ripeness and structure, not a hint of green and some minerals at the end. Will be a decent early drinker and a very good NSG.
July 1, 2014 - Expressive aroma of sweet cherry, dried flowers, earth and aniseed. It is generous, full and sweet in the mouth with lovely purity of fruit and plenty of floral spice. It is silky of texture and highly perfumed, building through the palate and fanning out on the finish. A pretty Nuits of great balance and poise.
June 27, 2014 - See through darker ruby with pale rose rim; slight veggie like stemmy quality, darker cherry, ripe strawberry, traditional, classic, younger; nice roundness to the fruit, weighty back end, fine tannin, evolved and got better with air; very plush for NSG I was in Gevrey but Mugnier's style transcends the occasional rusticity found in NSG; 91+.
April 6, 2014 - Knightsbridge 2011 Burgundy Tasting and Sale (Northbrook, IL): Tasting, brief note. This is the 4th or 5th Time I'm trying this wine and it keeps getting better. Not a powerhouse, but lots of charming and elegant ripe red cherry and berries. Very good value.
March 31, 2014 - Always been one of my favourites. Floral nose hiding right now. Cellar wine
March 26, 2014 - MASTER BORGOGNA AIS; 10/15/2013-6/28/2014 (HOTEL WESTIN PALACE MILANO): Che si addizionato di Profumo?! Mazzo di fiori di stagione in omaggio in un camerino da diva!! Karkadé, timo e finocchietto selvatico. Vaporoso e quasi pornografico!!
In bocca delude un pó...giovanissimo, molto fine e pulito, tannino ancora vibrante e teso... molto carattere del terroir di Nuits.
Gronda succo di fiori e terra, ma è un pó diluito... vino in sottrazione con finale esile
