The Story

On the first of November 2003,  Domaine J-F Mugnier increased from 4 to 14 hectares.  The Clos de la Maréchale, under the sole ownership of the Mugnier family since 1902, reverted to the Domaine when the farming contract ended after 53 years.

History
The origin of the name of this Clos is unknown. In 1855 the vineyard was known as ‘Clos des Fourches', then ‘Clos Maréchal' in 1892, before changing to ‘Clos de la Maréchale' in the 20th century.  Research by the historian Jean-François Bazin shows no evidence of a Marshal, or the widow of a Marshal,  during the Second Empire being connected to this village.  Further research is necessary.  Therefore, to follow...

The vineyard
The Clos de la Maréchale has a surface of 9 hectares, 76 ares.  It is the largest monopole (an appellation belonging to a single owner) in the Côte d'Or.  The average age of the vines in 2009 is about 45 years old.

The soil
The geological stratum on which the Clos de la Maréchale is situated plunges wellbelow the surface of the soil further south, marking the end of the Côte de Nuits, only to reappear in Le Montrachet between Puligny and Chassagne. Therefore one is not surprised to find the same qualities of power and longevity in these wines.

The Wine
They are wines that always need 5 to 10 years of ageing before expressing their typically floral character : "The bouquet of the 1er crus of Premeaux is remarkable and persistent : one finds the aroma of iris mingled with raspberries. Even more so, that of white lilac".

Written Notes

Ruby. Fresh nose, spices, red berries, some minerals, fruitier nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, firmer, structured, tighter than last bottle, spicey, needs time. 90

  • 90p

Soft, ripe, forward nose. Merely pretty. Medium body. Reasonable fruit and balance. But it lacks depth.

  • 78p
2009 Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Clos de la Marechale Closed and completely undeveloped nose with very ripe dark berry fruit, violets, black pepper and earthy notes. Not very Burgundian. Full bodied and intense with sweet, spicy, ripe dark fruit that fills the palate but lacks a bit of concentration and grip. Long, sure, but not very fresh or elegant. Needs plenty of time but I’m not sure this will ever be great Burgundy. Drink 2019-2028 90p
