Chambolle Musigny Domaine Murgnier J.-F. 2008

Outer quote mark An exuberant, fresh and ultra pure essence of red berry fruit nose is nuanced by wet stone and herbal hints and leads to detailed and equally stony middle weight flavors that are still quite primary and supported by a firm but ripe acid spine and fine length. A classic Chambolle that should make for a lovely villages. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark Allen Meadows – Burghound

Outer quote mark Mugnier’s 2008 Chambolle-Musigny is a gorgeous, translucent wine laced with sweet dark cherries, menthol, spices and licorice. It is totally striking and inviting from start to finish, with tons of perfume and a seductive, enticing personality. The 2008 doesn’t quite have the immediacy of the 2009, but readers lucky enough to find it won’t be disappointed. It should be even better in another few years, once the tannins soften a touch. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. (AG) Inner quote mark Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Description

Founded in 1863 by Frédéric MUGNIER, a liquor-maker in Dijon, included nearly twenty hectares of the best vineyards spread over Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
In 1950, following the economic crisis of the 1930s and the world war, Jacques-Frédéric MUGNIER, great-grandson of the first Frédéric, chose to sell the liquor business, and lease the vineyard out to a negociant in Nuits-saint-Georges.

The contract on the Chambolle vineyard ended in 1978 and 6 years later Frédéric MUGNIER, son of Jacques-Frédéric, assumed full responsibility for the family estate.

The most recent addition to the estate was the return of Clos de la Marechale to the domaine in 2004, changing dramatically its size and allowing a new and better organization.
