    March 11, 2019 - Stunning wine. Amazing nose full of earthy tones and classic Burgundian terroir. Still pretty tight with tannins that suggest it has the structure to last for years to come. But drinking very nicely now.

    March 8, 2019 - This turned into a fantastic bottle and experience. Initially, despite having a nice nose, the palate was devoid of fruit and was predominantly earth driven. In fact, I would even go so far as to say it had almost no fruit. On its own it was was like drinking water with soft tannins. Having some food helped but it was pretty empty still.

    Fast forward two hours in the decanter: everything opened up — nose, palate, mouth. Started drinking more like a more savory chambolle but with enough red fruit to really bring it all together. I still wished for a bit more fruit but this is very typical of the vintage. Great food wine. I recently had the Mugnier 2011 Chambolle and this is only a very small notch below despite being much cheaper in price.

    Lessons here for me are
    1). Don’t doubt Clos Marechale as being a world class wine and very representative of Mugnier’s style despite the size and reputation of the vineyard.
    2). These need time. They are easy to find and purchase but that doesn’t mean they can just be popped. 10+ years is ideal
    3). Decant for a while if you are going to try it young (<10 years)

    This is the only affordable Mugnier out there — buy every vintage while the price is still reasonable.

    February 15, 2019 - A wine worthy of its 1er cru title, if not more.
    Complex, and also got enough characters.

    February 13, 2019 - From a vertical of Mugnier's Marechal 2004 to 2016. LIght red colour, somewhit watery at the rim. Very reductive nose at first, almost nothing but smoked ham (!), smoke and mushrooms. Full bodied, hints of sweet fruit in the mid part, but that is quickly overshadowed by dry tannins and some very green tones (green peppers). There is clearly some fruit at the back struggeling to get through, but at the moment it does not succeed. A bit like the 09, but with much greener tones. A disappointment.

    January 4, 2019 - Half bottle format. It’s an ok wine for not an easy vintage. Overall, got the smoke, tar, purple fruits and a bit mineral on the nose and the palate, there was modest oakiness and a touch of greenness into finish, lack of complexity I was hoping for from JF Mugnier.
    Clos de la Maréchale is the largest monopole in Burgundy
