Started out nicely with black pepper, beef blood, and black cherries with a layer of turned soil. But after a few hours the fruit sensations devolved into simple spice notes which ended up tasting unpleasant. This is the second '06 opened in the last two months and both were disappointing.
Showing a whole lot more than it did late 2012. Generous Pinot fruit backed up by hints of dry soil, beef broth, barnyard, leather, spices and vanilla. Smooth and well balanced. Enjoy from now until 2020 – very glad I had the patience to wait this one out.

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
