DESCRIPTION

Allen Meadows' Burghound, January 2007
A completely different aromatic profile presents itself with more deeply pitched and quite ripe blue and violet aromas combining with pungent earth and game hints that continue onto the sweet, rich and sappy flavors wrapped around a firm tannic spine. This is impressive as it is clearly Nuits in character yet with refined and sophisticated structural elements. Also recommended. 89-92 points.

 

John Gilman's View from the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2006
The Clos de la Maréchale is also outstanding in 2005, as it very nicely avoids any signs of the slight overripeness that can be found in some examples of Nuits in this vintage. The ’05 Clos de la Maréchale offers up a complex and classic Nuits nose of red cherries, strawberries, orange zest, woodsmoke, excellent minerality, a touch of the gamebirds to come, coffee and just the faintest whiff of spicy wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and transparent, with a lovely austerity that is almost a relief after all the opulent 2005s, a sappy core of red fruit, beautiful focus, and excellent length and grip on the tangy, ripely tannic finish. One does not expect young Nuits in a great vintage to offer a lot of early generosity, and the ’05 Clos de la Maréchale is beautifully balanced on its structural elements, but it will not take too many years of bottle age for this wine to really begin to sing. A Nuits St. Georges with a Chambolle’s heart in 2005. Most impressive. 2012-2035. 92+ points.
