Mugnier Musigny 1993 750mL


BH 97 "The intense and now slowly, indeed almost grudgingly maturing Pinot fruit just explodes from the glass offering beautifully nuanced smoke, violets and a cornucopia of red fruit. The mid-palate is still relatively tight with flavors that are so precise that they seem to etch themselves into your palate before joining with a seamless finish that seems to go on and on. Mugnier once told me that this is the finest wine he has ever made and I don't doubt it for a second. This is "thrill a second" juice that should drink well for another 15 to 20 years, perhaps longer. The word "brillliant" does not seem adequate to describe just how good this wine is. In terms of drinkability, this is still on the way up though I underscore that it is approaching its prime window of drinkability. Note: While my notes are reasonably consistent with this wine, I have encountered some minor bottle variation that I suspect was due to shipping and/or storage. (AM)" (April 2014)
