2009 JF Mugnier Clos de la Marechale 1er Cru Nuits – St. Georges $70

My 6th place wine, the group’s 4th

Nicely aromatic with notes of orange, stem, musk and floral perfumes on the nose. At first this struck me as inelegant and flat in the mouth, but with air, this turned more elegant and refined, never loosing a certain rusticity. There seem to be some excessive dry wood tannins here, but the wine shows potential even though it is a bit opaque on the palate today. 88 pts
