another mugneret, 04 NSG 1er chaignots

Update 25.1.2007(7.1.2007)billn

mugneret 2004 nsg 1er
The last wine from this domaine for a while:
Domaine Georges Mugneret, Nuits St.Georges 1er Les Chaignotstry to find this wine...
Darker than the Gevrey that preceded it, and a shade lighter than the Vosne that preceded that. The nose is deep and dark, initially just a little monolithic, slowly it gives a peek of black cherry, cream, and faint coffee mixed with smoke. Seems to fill the mouth and has a super intensity to the mid-palate. Powerful and mouthwatering this shows a higher level of tannin than the Gevrey and it’s perceptibly grainier too – though certainly not misbehaved – it’s very well covered. The finish is longer with an edge of cream to the fine burst fruit. A super NSG.
Rebuy – Yes

Altogether more about it than the Gevrey today, but it’s a little more challenging to drink than the Vosne which would be my drink of choice for the next couple of years from this trio.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks for the note, I picked up some 04 NSG Vignes-rondes and Ruchottes recently and was interested to get a data point on those – this gives me cause for optimism.
    I managed to buy some 01 & 02 Vignes-Rondes also last year, but haven’t cracked one yet – any notes?

    Sorry Kent, the 96 an 97 are the only ones I can remember having.
