RATINGS

91The Wine Advocate

The palate is smooth in the mouth, supple and quite plush, clearly with some quality new oak that is almost Cathiard-like in style

91Stephen Tanzer

...very dry and concentrated, conveying a strong impression of inner-palate energy. Sexy cherry and crushed stone flavors are framed by suave tannins on the very long, aromatic back end.

90Burghound.com

...exotic aromas of pear, dried apricot, spiced tea & soft lemon zest nuances to be appreciated. The sappy & attractively textured medium-bodied flavors possess solid volume before terminating in a balanced, delicious and lingering finish.

17+ Jancis Robinson

Terrific depth and focus on the nose: blackberry fruit on Nuits seen through the delicate aromatic prism of Chambolle.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Nuits-St.-Georges, Clos De La Marechale

Clos de la Marechale is a 25-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Nuits-Saints-Georges appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote-de-Nuits. It is one of a string of Premier Cru vineyards on the southern edge of the appellation that are in the commune of Premeaux. These vineyards are steep and Clos de la Marechale rises to more than 240 meters, with a southern orientation. The soil contains significant sand and clay. This vineyard is a monopole, which was contracted to Maison Joseph Faiveley until the end of 2003. In 2004 the vineyard reverted back to J.F. Mugnier.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
