Frédéric Mugnier

Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale has been owned solely by the Mugnier family of Chambolle-Musigny for generations, but the vineyard was let out for cultivation elsewhere, for many years. Frédéric succeeded in claiming it back in 2004: the wine has gone from strength to strength ever since.

“I like the reliable consistency of Clos de la Maréchale,” says Mugnier. “Musigny is great, Amoureuses is exciting, but Maréchale is my favourite vineyard.” On wine making, Mugnier explains: “All my wines are made in exactly the same way – fermentation, use of wood, time in barrel. Any difference must come from the place, the age of vines, the location. Each wine must be the expression of something that comes from nature.”

Concerning the 2022 vintage, Mugnier told us: “I was worried, as the vines were suffering badly from drought and heat, with berries drying in the clusters. I thought that it’s going to be awful, there’ll be nothing left, and if there is, it may be over-ripe! But a bit of rain in the second half of August changed everything. The wines are rich and fruity enough, supple, fresh and integrated. Drinkable early, and it will develop progressively, with time. It’s a very good surprise.”
