NUITS SAINT GEORGES
2015 1er Cru Chaignots Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
|Village||Nuits Saint Georges|
Very deep colour; like a lot of wines this year this is really almost black at the centre, and the fruit expression is very dark, almost Nebbiolo-like black fruit flavours, lovely sweetness, rich, and its structure is severe but also a joy, bouncy and pinging with flavour, and finishing saline and elegant. Drinking range: 2024 - L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A distinctly spicy nose offers up ripe aromas of cassis, plum, mocha and violet that are trimmed in subtle earth nuances. There is fine volume and mid-palate density to the strikingly rich and suave medium-bodied flavors that display excellent persistence and complexity on the firm and lightly mineral-suffused finish that, like the Vignes Rondes, flashes a hint of dryness though in this case, I suspect that it will eventually come together and my rating offers the benefit of the doubt.

Oak spice, black cherry, very fine tannin, wonderful acidic line keeping freshness. The fruit is crystalline and persistent, though not perhaps dense enough for very long age. Drinking range: 2019 - 2035 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2017)
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 Jacqueline retired and 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.In 2017 Marie-Christine 's daughter Lucie joined the domaine, and Marion and Fanny, daughters of Marie-Andrée are now also part of the team.
