Just about entering its drinking window. Not infanticide to have this now but still on the early side. Best decant at this stage. Classy elegant wine, light smoky, berry nose, still primary on the fruit but in balance. Took its time to develop on the nose. The palate is a class act, classic, purity of fruit and depth of flavour. The tannin is round yet bright and has a nice texture. Pretty solid. 91

It’s amazing how far this wine has come in only a few vintages - Mugnier cannot be stopped and the Marechale would be one of the finest wines of its type in any vintage, let alone 2006. I’ve had this wine three different times from barrel and on each occasion it becomes more and more complete. If you are into Nuits (or Mugnier in general) this wine should not be missed - it rises above any preconception and delivers the promise of the terroir it was crafted from. For my taste, a fabulous expression.
This wine is highly allocated in 2006 - please let us know your interest at your earliest convenience
