Red wine

Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru, Clos de la Maréchale 2004

RRP £83

The first vintage after retrieving this vineyard from a long-term lease to Faiveley. Marked 2004 profile, with tomato and green pepper. I like the smooth texture, and it shows a certain generosity for a light vintage. Supple tannins on the mid-palate become slightly dusty on the finish. Not certain to last longer and possibly past its best. (I preferred it when I tasted it two years ago.)
