About Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier
From 13.5 hectares in Chambolle-Musigny, Freddy Mugnier produces elegant, silky Pinot Noirs that perfectly capture the sappy red berry and mineral character of the region. Not bad for a guy who served as an airline pilot until 2000.

($519) Bright ruby-red. Incredible nose combines cool blackberry liqueur, violet, crushed stone, exotic spices and mocha, along with ineffable soil tones of mushroomy underbrush; not quite as high-pitched today as the Amoureuses but then this is holding more in reserve. Hugely silky and thick but youthfully brooding today, with very ripe flavors of berry liqueur, dark chocolate, mocha and earth; today the treble notes of flowers and minerals are covered by the wine's sheer volume. This amazingly long and mouthfilling wine was inscrutable from barrel a year ago, and I continue to find it extremely closed today. No doubt it will require a good 10 to 12 years of cellaring to achieve its adult form. Today it's the Amoureuses that hits my G-spot but this will be a monument.
