2008 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay BeauregardsDec. 2010
Medium colour. Medium width too, and some reduction for the first hour; eventually a nice red dominated-berry fruit and the last drops have a lovely acid-cherry impression. In the mouth there is a freshness that dovetails nicely with the width – again emphasising an acid-cherry note. There was again plenty of CO2 making this almost shiraz-like for thirty minutes or so, but sixty minutes in there was no mistaking the provenance of this wine. More elegant and finer than the Maladières but equal fun. Enjoyed!
2008 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay-MaladièreDec. 2010
A really interesting wine. First of all, too much CO2; I had to re-stopper the wine and give it a good shake to liberate a few litres of gas – fortunately the wine managed to stay in the bottle despite sounding like champagne as I removed the cork (the second time)! ‘Cold’ from the cellar this is focused and just a little mineral, let it warm and it gets rounder and rounder and eventually a little flabby – I chose to keep it cool with the following result: Deep aromas of fruit, some hints of reduction that quickly fade, the nose opening in tandem to offer nice dark red fruits. This is nicely supple, has good concentration and plenty of fruit padding to balance the acidity. Nice length too. This is a large but well-focused wine – just don’t let it get too warm. Very good value too.
2009 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay Champs-ClaudesDec. 2010
Blanc. Lots of mid-palate density plus a hint of something spicy. Long finish – but I don’t get along with something in the flavour.
2009 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay Clos FaubardDec. 2010
Blanc. Deep aromas – almost winey! Full, much more interesting flavours than the Champs-Claudes and delivered with quite some authority. Good wine.
2008 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay-MaladièreDec. 2010
Deep aromas of fruit that hint to a little reduction – slowly widening and opening to a red fruit. Tannin is quite supple and there is good flavour intensity. Nice length too.
2008 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay Clos FaubardDec. 2010
Again, nice dark aromas that are framed with some subtle reduction. Again this is relatively silky but is more direct and mineral – intensity is similar though. Very nice flavour – good wine.
2008 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay Clos des MouchesDec. 2010
Forming the south-west edge of Beauregards. The nose has dark and rather detailed fruit without any hint of reduction. Good freshness, this is well-packed with flavour. Some tannin clings to your gums but with it there is more flavour too.
2008 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay BeauregardsDec. 2010
From just below Santenay’s windmill. The nose shows pretty red fruits, much redder than the ‘Mouches’, this one does show a little reduction too. Fuller, round and flavour-packed. There’s plenty of tannin and just a little astringency as you near the finish – but no problem – good wine.
2008 Muzard Lucien et Fils, Santenay GravièresDec. 2010
The nose seems wider but less focused. The flavours show less impact than the Beauregard’s, however, are quite mineral and finely detailed. Fresh but not too fresh, finishing on a very pretty fruit note.
