Jacques Frederic Mugnier Le Musigny Grand Cru 2013
The 2013 Jacques Frederic MUGNIER Le Musigny Grand Cru is a true masterpiece from this renowned producer. The wine displays a deep garnet color, with an expressive nose of red cherries, raspberries, rose petals, and hints of forest floor. The palate is elegant and refined, showcasing layers of silky red fruit, velvety tannins, and a vibrant acidity that adds balance and structure. The long, complex finish is a testament to this wine's pedigree and aging potential.
Producer tasting notes- Le Musigny shares certain characteristics with its neighbour Les Amoureuses; the elegance of richness without heaviness, and it has a similar palette of aromatic composition, although in the case of the Musigny, the underlying structure is less vibrant, more steady, with exceptional depth and intensity of flavour. The length of the finish on the palate is incomparable.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)- Released only late last year, Mugnier's 2013 Musigny Grand Cru is still far from true maturity, but it has at least begun a graceful evolution, unwinding in the glass with scents of exotic spices, red berries, orange rind, rose petals, potpourri and sweet soil tones. Full-bodied, ample and velvety, with powdery, melting tannins and lively acids, the cool, late harvest has imparted a cool, crystalline purity to its deep core of fruit. Long and sapid, ideally one would forget it for another decade to see it at the beginning of what will be a long plateau of maturity.
