2011 CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY, JF Mugnier. Burgundy

Bin:  800

Alcohol percentage:  13%


Jasper Morris MW:
“In 1985 Frédéric Mugnier, the 5th generation of the family on the property, took over, though he combined running the family domaine with his job as an airline pilot until 1998. Now he concentrates solely on the domaine, where consistency has improved as a result, and from 2004 has also taken back the Nuits St Georges Clos de la Maréchale vineyard, on lease to Faiveley since 1950. The Domaine is the second largest owner of le Musigny.
The vines are run almost organically – no herbicides since 1991, no pesticides since 1997 and now only two treatments a year (against mildew) which are not organic. Frédéric is not an enthusiast for biodynamics however. A hint as to his philosophy appears on his website where he draws a parallel between the mature Glenn Gould finding ‘too much piano playing’ in his early work and the overworked winemaking evident in some Burgundy today.
The grapes are sorted diligently by the pickers before coming to the cellar in small cases. 100% stalks are removed and the whole berries are then conveyed into vats. The wines are bottled after a second winter in wood without fining or filtration. The wines are rarely deep in colour but are brilliantly fragrant in bouquet and notably persistent on the finish.”

Old Bridge rating:

2011s have a poor reputation. This one really tests that theory, it’s perfect, delicate, elegant Chambolle.

Press review:

“Pale bright crimson. Very pure and clean and direct. Sings straight at the eyeballs! Lovely purity. What more do you want? Enormous pleasure. Not enormous depth but lovely early maturing top-quality village burgundy”. www.jancisrobinson.com
