Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier Clos de la Marechale 2016

A very small amount of this special wine hits our shelves each year, and this vintage is no exception.  With only a handful of bottles available do not miss out on the collectible Burgundy.  From Wine Advocate....

2026 - 2055

Aromas of cassis, dark plums, baking chocolate and rosehip introduce the 2016 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale, a full-bodied, rich and layered wine with a broad-shouldered chassis of fine, stony tannins that are entirely enveloped in fleshy, gourmand fruit. This vintage is atypically rich and concentrated, so it's hard to predict if and when it will shut down.

Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier and his team have produced some of the wines of the 2017 vintage in the Côte de Nuits, and this was among the most thrilling of some two hundred domaine visits. Mugnier's pure, ethereal style has captured all the succulence and potential elegance of the year, but the wines also possess uncommon depth and intensity. The Musigny is predictably brilliant, a yardstick against which to measure others, but it is also worth singling out the Bonnes-Mares to readers that may not be paying attention, since the last few vintages of this cuvée rank as the best Mugnier has so far produced: as the vines mature, he says, it's becoming "more Chambolle" in character, and evidently that is no bad thing. Note that the Musigny itself will not be released for several years, as Mugnier continues to hold back the wine to prevent its premature consumption.
