Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
91-93 WA / 16.5 JR
The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale Blanc offers up aromas of citrus oil, green apples and pastry cream, followed by a medium to full-bodied, textural palate with succulent acids, good depth and length, and chalky phenolic grip. It's very promising.
A little lighter in colour compared with the 2018. Still spicy but more citrus as well as stone fruit and pear. More stony and cedary, more marked by the wood in a cedary character even though the barrels are 7–8 years old. Tight and cedary on the finish. Not as broad or spicy as the 2018 but more ‘woody’. Crisp and dry. As Freddie Mugnier’s right-hand man said, Nuits-St-Georges whites are unusual for lovers of Côte de Beaune Chardonnay. (JH) Julia Harding MW – Jancis Robinson
