The Fourrier from the other night was excellent, so I can see myself looking at a few more 07s over the next days…
2007 JF Mugnier, Nuits St.Georges 1er Clos de la Marechale
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is of punchy red fruit and a hint of kirsch. Smooth, good concentration and with understated but balancing acidity. The tannins of Nuits are largely tamed, there’s just a little stickiness to them, but you really couldn’t say ‘rustic’. The finishing flavours have a hint of cherry-stone bitterness to them. This is a good wine but clearly a wine that needs more time than the Fourrier of the other night – so leave it in the cellar for a while!
Rebuy – Yes

Thanks Bill. Picked up 4 recently and was itching to try one. I’ll resist the temptation. How long should I wait? (Don’t tell me 20 years!)
There’s plenty of fruit, so I’m sure it will be safe territory in another 1-3 years, but I have no doubt it will last for 20, no doubt at all 😉
