After an intense sorting at harvest, the grape bunches are then moved to their gravity-flow winery, where they are sorted a second time. The 1er cru monopole of Clos des Forets comes across as an incredibly deep and muscular wine with great intensity and lively energy, showing transparency of Forets fruit and vintage character. The 2011 is just starting to open up now, while the 2012 deserves a place of prestige in your cellar. ✦ domaine de l'Arlot nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos des forets St. Georges 2011 AG 93 » $85 "...clear standout...shows off its inimitable personality...terrific example of both Nuits and Clos des Forets St. Georges."

However, the true turning point was in 2004, when Faiveley lost the lease on 9.5 hectares of Mugnier's Nuits St. George 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale, giving Frederic the largest monopoly in Burgundy. Suddenly the stakes were raised, yet even as his domaine expanded, the methods remained the same. Frederic Mugnier now produces some of the purest and most finessed wines in all of Burgundy. ✦ domaine Jf Mugnier nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Marechale 2011 AG 91+ » $94 "Clos de La Maréchale remains the hidden jewel in Mugnier's range..."
