Nuits St.Georges Les Chaignots

2004 Mugneret Dr Georges Nuits St.Georges Les Chaignots

By on April 01, 2007 #asides

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.

Medium-plus colour. Drunk directly after the l’Arlot Nuits (Les Fôrets); the nose is instantly more concentrated and fruit driven, edged with a Vosne-like spicyness. Again the palate is more fruit-driven and shows a higher level of tannins, but they are finer cut. A good finish too. Despite sharing a Nuits 1er cru label, this is a totally different wine to the l’Arlot, each will have their own followers. Today I would choose the aromatics of the l’Arlot and the palate of the Mugneret!
