RATINGS

92+ The Wine Advocate

...scents of red berries, plums, orange rind, sweet spices and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, ample and concentrated, with powdery tannins and lively acids...

...wonderfully fresh and perfumed with its array of red raspberry, violet and warm earth where the latter element is reflected by the sleek, delineated and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that present lovely depth and persistence.

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Earthy and lively and really quite rich. Zesty and lots of fun.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, 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.
