Other Reviews....
Discreet wood influence sets off the ripe and fresh aromas of apple, pear, peach and lemon zest. I very much like the texture of the nicely delineated middle weight flavors that conclude in an agreeably dry, youthfully austere and lightly stony finish where a hint of bitter citrus adds to the appeal. This is really quite good and worth checking out. Drink 2023+.

Tasted from bottle, Mugnier's 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale Blanc offers up aromas of pear, clear honey, beeswax and marzipan. Medium to full-bodied, chalky and textural, it's an open, expressive rendition of this cuvée that will drink well on the young side. Drink 2021 - 2033.

The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale Blanc 1er Cru, half of which was lost to hail, has a simple bouquet of dried honey and apple peel. The palate is slightly honeyed on the entry, offering dried mango and light peach notes toward the rich finish. This is one for early drinking. Drink 2020 - 2025.

Neal Martin - Vinous

Mid lemon but fresh with a lovely nose, very typical of this plot, liquorice and ripe apples. Ripe, too well balanced to be described as luscious though there is a certain sucrosity. Generous fruit with good concentration and enough acidity. 8 barrels were made from 0.60ha.
