February 7, 2020 - 5/12, vg cork.
Medium garnet core, pale garnet rim. Nose is moderately intense, developed, showing plum, bilberry, forest floor, soil. Medium bodied, darkish fruit, forest floor, elegant with gentle tannins, touch of liquorice, moderate acidity, good length harmonious finish. Quietly spoken but articulate and now showing a bit more Nuits St Georges character.
January 31, 2020 - From Magnum. Expressive nose of earthy scents, spices, sandal wood. The palate is tame and soft. Good aromatic complexity but I miss the energy of the 2008 which I recently had. Still, well made for a 2007.

Some brett on this bottle as well. Underneath it, and after it blows off, is a well proportioned midweight, earthy pinot with mossy, herbal tones that compliment it's supple red fruit. There's nice sap balanced with a lightness on its feet. I like the earthy, savory and ferrous tones here that in this bottle shine a little more than the fruit. There a grace that is a nice juxtaposition to the meaty- earthy tones of NSG. Good length and finishes with a little basil, cool herbal tones. A NSG with it's heart in Chambolle. Lovely and drinking at peak. 90
December 9, 2019 - I saw this when looking for something else and remembered a note saying it was getting a little tired. Well, not this bottle. Bright acids, light tannin, crunchy red fruits. Soil and cedar, some peppery spice. Drinking pretty well but I am in no hurry with these. B+/A-
October 17, 2019 - Glue, spice and with too much acidity. Very lean and you get the impression the fruit is gone. Must have been a bad bottle.
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 2018/12 (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.
