June 22, 2019 - Tasted blind next to the 08, was fairly obvious this was the 07. The profile of this wine is much more about soil and earth with hints of red fruits here and there. The 07 vintage was lighter and more expressive in the beginning and is maturing at a faster pace than the 08.
April 22, 2019 - Tasted blind. Easily identifiable as Burgundy- light red, sour cherries, slight stemmy quality. Definitely representative of the vintage, but balanced if on the leaner side. Drink it if you have it.
February 13, 2019 - From a vertical of Mugnier's Marechal 2004 to 2016. The most positive surprise of the tasting (although not the best wine). LIght colour, certain signs of maturing at the rim. Beuatiful nose dominated by tertiary aromas like camphor, cedar, leather and tobacco (one of the tasters said "pickled tobacco", and although I have never smelled that I fully understand what he means). Medium body, sweet attack in the mouth, nice sweetness dominated by dried cherries, as well as clear nutty tone. Fine acidity, almost no tannins left. A mature NSG without any hard edges, just a pleasure to drink.
December 12, 2018 - Acker December Auction 2018 (Vaucluse): Great acidity with punch of stem. 92
October 4, 2018 - VinoLaprisco Tasting (Restaurant De Karpendonkse Hoeve *, Eindhoven, Netherlands): Marries the delicate style of Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier to the earth and iron character of Nuits, stylish, elegant, refined and silky but with a firm core, mature now but retains its fruit. Drink now - 2022.
July 27, 2018 - This bottle is ready. There's a menthol note, and dark fruit, but also a somewhat flat feel to the wine and, despite being still fairly structural, it's lacking much in the way of vibrancy or detail. Decent but unremarkable.
July 12, 2018 - (375 ml) Very approachable in half. Red cherry and raspberry, earth and mushroom, gets quite floral with air. Nice balance, lovely wine though I probably wouldn't guess NSG at first, more feminine like a Chambolle or Volnay. B+/A-
April 21, 2018 - A little barnyard, brett on this bottle. Nice NSG earth, cherry fruit, florals, moss and cooler aromatic herbal tones. Supple and with nice sappy texture. A nice mix of the wild side of NSG dirt but with its heart in Chambolle.
February 23, 2018 - Decant was too short. Started to open up on the last glass. A bit thin and tight.
January 19, 2018 - Floral nose with wild berries, earth and herbs. Palate has sweet berries. It is earthy, rustic and herbal. A ready to drink nsg.
