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 - CORSO AIS BORGOGNA - MILANO; 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
March 16, 2014 - Small pour at a tasting. Very disappointing. Underripe and pyraziney, with the red fruit on the nose marred by green, and short and bitter in the mouth. It's not exactly 04-style green, it just tastes underripe to me.
January 31, 2014 - Medium color. Medium weight. Brambly red fruit with persistent, rising green notes that dominate the finish. I have tasted this twice now and find the herbaceousness very problematic and unenjoyable. If you are averse to this characteristic, this is a wine to avoid regardless of the reputation of the producer.
