- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
A brooding, slightly riper and more deeply pitched nose features notes of poached plum, cassis and plenty of spice and floral nuances and in particular violet. There is very good punch to the delicious and suave medium-bodied flavors that exude more evident minerality on the firm, serious and youthfully austere finish. This is perhaps not quite as refined as it usually is but the complexity and persistence are excellent and overall, this is particularly impressive given the hailstorms of 2018. Drink 2026+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
From bottle, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale is still marked by the extremes of the vintage. It offers up attractive aromas of cassis, cherries, rose petals and violets, but it's rich, firm and rather heady on the palate, bearing the stamp of the two hailstorms that struck this site. Mugnier wonders if it might evolve like his 1991, so perhaps time will be kind to it. Drink 2026 - 2050.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale 1er Cru was tasted from a blend of five cuvées. It has an attractive bouquet of mainly black fruit laced with black tea and bay leaf notes, plus touches of rose petal in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, tending more toward a red fruit profile, with wonderful salinity on the finish. Good potential. Excellent. Drink 2022 - 2040.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Fine purple, a certain elegance then some breadstick aromatics which I associate with low level volatility. A wealth of liquid black cherries on the nose, some sandalwood, some spice, more tannic structure, more Nuits-St-Georges than Clos de la Maréchale in a sense.
