2011 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots, Georges Mugneret-Gibourg

From the Vosne side of the Nuits-St-Georges appellation, this cuvée has a fragrant and attractive nose and a delicious freshness to the palate. This belies a hidden structural strength provided by the velvet tannins. One colleague described it succinctly as having "energy and freshness, combined with power and richness".

Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg

Tucked away in Vosne-Romanée, sisters Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée are widely regarded by their fellow winemakers as two of Burgundy’s biggest stars. They create the purest expressions of Pinot Noir that exist: wines that are elegant and classy with remarkable complexity. Despite their stardom, this down-to-earth pair, located next door to François Lamarche, remain focused on their wines. It is their unrivalled lightness of touch that shines so brightly in these sought-after bottles.
