Lot #10. Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier Musigny 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96+ JG.
"I was not prepared for the 1996 Mugnier Musigny to show as brilliantly as it did at our tasting, but it is clearly now beginning to blossom and underneath its structural elements there are copious amounts of sappy fruit that were not always readily apparent. The classic and magical nose offers up a fine mélange of cherries, strawberries, beetroot, mustard seed, striking iron-like soil tones, coffee, cocoa, blood orange and forest floor. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very, very transparent, with modest tannins, zesty acids and simply brilliant length on the tangy finish that closes with impressively sweet, sappy fruit. This is a brilliant bottle of Musigny in the making." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2011, Issue #35
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,700
