1976 Domaine Georges Mugneret NSG Les Chaignots (PRE-ARRIVAL)

"I am sure that the Mugneret sisters do not remember this, but on one of my very first visits to the domaine, they opened a bottle of this wine blind for myself and a friend to taste after we had worked our way through the new vintage in barrel, and out of sheer luck, we guessed the wine exactly! This is a magnum that they brought to a Paulée de New York tasting a few years ago and it was showing beautifully, offering up a deep and complex nose of roasted plums, red berries, gamebirds, sous bois, woodsmoke, earth, coffee and a touch of citrus peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, complex and now perfectly resolved, with faded tannins, lovely focus, tangy acids and really lovely length and grip on the complex and tertiary finish. This was still a bit fiery with ’76 tannins when it was served blind to us (one of the reasons it was fairly easy to peg it as a 1976 red Burgundy at the time), but it has evolved very gracefully and is a lovely example of the vintage" -John Gilman
