Created in 1863, this is a family estate run from the Château de Chambolle-Musigny. This was initially a 4-hectare Chambolle domaine but since Frédéric took back the family’s old Nuits St-Georges Monopole, Clos de la Maréchale, from Faiveley in 2004, the Domaine has increased to 13 hectares. The aim is to produce wines that are each representative of their respective terroir and vintage, while at the same time having their individual character, wines of harmony and sincerity. This is achieved by eliminating weed-killers and industrial fertilisers in the vineyard; neither of these have been used for 10 years, whilst in the cellars all processes that traumatise the wine, over extraction, for example, or excessive woodiness, are limited to a minimum. To allow each terroir to express itself, the wine making is excatly the same for all of the wines. These are sensual, stylish Burgundies of great finesse.

Readers may remember my admiration for the 2015 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru shortly after it was bottled. Today, as the wine is released onto the market, my enthusiasm is undiminished, as the wine is showing superbly, unfurling in the glass with a deep bouquet of cherries, raspberries, rose petals, exotic spices, orange rind and hints of smoked duck and forest floor. Full-bodied, deep and layered, it's seamless and complete, with terrific concentration, powdery tannins and lively animating acids that come together in an effortless ensemble. Concluding with a broad, expansive finish, five years in Mugnier's cellars before release haven't brought the wine to anywhere near its ultimate peak, but they have at least given a sense of the direction of travel!

This is fabulous from first sight and first sniff. An imperial purple robe, nothing black. The nose is sensual but controlled, majestic yet within a properly structured set of guidelines. At this level one cannot isolate flavours or it wouldn’t be as great a wine! Sumptuous mouthful is too easy to say, some liquorice at the back, with more red fruit than black, and good acidity. A magical wine for the long term future. Drink from 2030-2050.

Tasting Profile

From first sight, the wine captivates with its imperial purple robe, hinting at the regal experience to come. The nose, both sensual and disciplined, exudes majesty within a meticulously structured framework, evoking a sense of grandeur that defies individual flavor isolation.
With a sumptuous mouthfeel that defies mere description, hints of liquorice linger in the background, complemented by a profusion of red fruit nuances over black. Balanced acidity adds a refreshing zest, completing a palate that transcends expectation.
