Mugnier`s 1999 Musigny Grand Cru is still a very youthful wine, but a few hours` decant gives a more than adequate sense of its immense quality. A beautiful bouquet of raspberries, black cherry, cocoa powder, violets, peony and incipient notes of rich soil and cedar introduce a pure, full-bodied wine with pitch-perfect balance and a deep, spherical core of ripe tannin, juicy acidity and reserved concentration. This is not an especially flamboyant wine, but it`s incredibly authoritative and sophisticated; and in another decade, it will be just irresistible.
The Burgundian house of Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier is located in Chambolle-Musigny and is particularly known for its classic example of Musigny Grand Cru wine made from the Pinot Noir grape. The chateau’s history began in the 1880s when Frederic Mugnier established a successful company in Dijon known for producing aperitifs, absinthes, cassis, liquors and aromatized wine, and today, although producing vastly different products, is run by his great-great-grandson by the same name. Along with their grand vin, Jacques-Frederic Mugnier makes wine from Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru vineyard as well as two premier cru wines from Les Fuees and Les Amoureuses vineyard and a village level wine. Current winemaking methods do their best to honor the great terroir that they have acquired over the centuries in Burgundy.
