Description

Moderately saturated red-ruby. Musky ripe raspberry, minerals and flowers on the slightly medicinal nose. Sweet and fat, with noteworthy complexity and volume to its berry and mocha flavors. Finishes long and spicy, with very ripe, suave tannins for village wine.(Stephen Tanzer - March-2008)

Burghound90/100
An elegant, ripe and seductive nose of red, blue and violet aromas that are pure and very fresh lead to refined, rich and again, ultra pure flavors that are delicious, vibrant and offer excellent volume at this level. A terrific villages of 1er quality and worth a close look.

Jancis Robinson17/20
Notably fresh nose, very lively already - no sign of going into a shell. A good example of Mugnier's super-pure wine style.

Wine Advocate90-92/100
From Combe d Orveaux above the Chateau de Vougeot and Plantes (a premier cru), Mugniers 2005 Chambolle-Musingy puts forward a lovely nose of red raspberry, cherry, high-toned citrus oils, and heady gardenia perfume. A tender, infectiously-juicy and silken-textured palate brimming with fresh red raspberries and cherries leads into a bright sweetly-fruited, subtly spicy and chalky finish that successfully pulls through the striking floral fragrances and zesty citricity. This might not have a dull day in its life, but even if it swoons briefly after bottling, it should make for plenty of pleasure between at the very least 2-7 years of age.

About this WINE

Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier

Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier

Frédéric Mugnier – the fifth generation of the family on the property – took over in 1985. As of 2004, he has reclaimed the Nuits-St Georges Clos de la Maréchale vineyard, which had been on lease to Faiveley since 1950.

Chambolle Musigny

Chambolle Musigny

Chambolle produces the most elegant wines in the Côte de Nuits, having more active chalk and less clay in the soil than the other villages. The wines may be a little lighter in colour and less tannic than Gevrey-Chambertin but they have a sublime concentration of fruit. Village Chambolle-Musigny usually provides excellent value.

Le Musigny is one of the top half-dozen vineyards in Burgundy, producing wines of extraordinary intensity and yet with a magical velvety character. Les Amoureuses is immediately appealing, a wonderfully sensual wine which deserves Grand Cru status. Bonnes Mares tends to have a firmer structure and ages very well

  • 94 hectares of village Chambolle-Musigny.
  • 61 hectares of Premier Cru vineyards (24 in all). The finest vineyards include Les Amoureuses, Les Charmes, Les Fuées, Les Baudes and Sentiers.
  • 24 hectares of Grand Cru vineyard - Bonnes Mares and Le Musigny.
  • Recommended producers:  de Vogüé, Mugnier, Roumier, Barthod.
  • Recommended restaurant: Le Chambolle

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy's Côte d'Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climats of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
