NUITS SAINT GEORGES
2009 1er Cru Chaignots Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
|Village||Nuits Saint Georges|
Wonderful richness of fruit; the consistency of weighty silk, still lively and bright, on red fruit rather than black. Expressive, juicy raspberries and richly mineral too. The tannins are so fine one barely notices the considerable power of the structure which makes it very long. L&S (Nov 2010)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A lightly spiced nose of red currant cassis and violet aromas is trimmed in soft wood notes that precede the supple and moderately well-concentrated yet relatively fine medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent depth and length in a well-balanced package. Like its 2010 counterpart it is only on the finish does the robustness of a classic Nuits arrive and overall, this is really fine juice with excellent cellaring potential.

Extremely aromatic and polished for a NSG, with leafy elegance, stylish tannins and supple red fruits. The sort of wine you want to glug straight from the bottle. Now-5 years. Rating: 93 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(Feb 2011)
Rich cherry nose, with abundant fruit. Lush and suave, concentrated but not extracted, has solid fruit but energy and length too. Drink 2013-2020. Rating: ****17.5 Stephen Brook, Decanter.com(Feb 2011)
This Nuits Chaignots has a very well defined nose, although I actually prefer the delineation and natural charm of the Vosne Village. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, supple but robust tannins, a very concentration Nuits although perhaps just missing a little precision on the finish. Still very fine.

Good deep red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of black cherry, licorice, pepper and flowers. Very ripe but juicy and a bit youthfully imploded, with much more energy and tannic support than the Vosne villages This broad, long wine saturates the palate on the spicy finish.

Very rich and sweet but with some structure. I think this domaine has done a very nice job in 2009. Needs time but not specious. 2017-2023 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2011)
Darkish garnet. Sweet-sour cherry. Aromatic and fresh. Also very soft and smooth. So easy already but just a little light on the mid palate. 2013-2019 Rating: 16.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2011)
Dark fruit woven with deep spice. Velvet on the front of the palate. Dark opulent fruit in the middle, coupled with some firmness, density and grip. I like this compact palate and especially the tannins which are full and smoothly textured. Excellent structure. The acidity comes though on the finish. A very well balanced wine, which will develop over quite some time given those firm but rounded tannins. Fine. From 2015Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Jan 2011)

Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg was founded in 1933 on the marriage of Jeanne Gibourg and André Mugneret. Holdings then consisted of Bourgogne, village Nuits, village Vosne and Echezeaux. Their son Georges, an opthalmologist by day, added to the vineyards, but his acquisitions (Nuits 1ers Crus Vignes Rondes and Chaignots, Chambolle 1er Cru Feusselottes, and Grands Crus Clos Vougeot and Ruchottes Chambertin) were kept separate as Domaine Georges Mugneret. On Georges' death in 1988, his widow Jacqueline and daughter Marie-Christine took over. Marie-Andrée, the younger daughter joined them a little later having completed her studies as an oenologist. In 2009 the two domaine names were put together to become Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg, ending the prior confusion of labels. The sisters have proved more than safe hands as far as the winemaking is concerned, and these are top-flight burgundies with that elusive balance of enough concentration allied with delicacy of expression and the capability to age well. All the vineyard management has been brought in-house (the domaine previously relied on two métayeurs for part of the vineyard) and the quality has reached new heights, its wines some of the most sought-after in the Côte de Nuits.
