- Presentation of the winery
The winery was founded in 1863 by Frédéric Mugnier, who was a liqueur sceller in Dijon. At the time the area includes twenty hectares from Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-Saint-Georges. The winery and factory liqueurs will operate until 1949, run by his son and grandson. In 1950, Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, his grandson, decided to sell the mill liquors and entrusts leased the vineyard. Over the field of inheritance fell into a great house wine Nuits-Saint-Georges. In 1978, the family took over the operation of vineyards. In 2004, the area increased from 4 to 14 hectares by the end of the tenancy of the Clos de la Maréchale.
The 1st growth "Les Amoureuses" is an elegant and refined wine, ruby coloured. "Les Amoureuses" offer aromas of flowers such as acacia or lilac, but also notes of red fruits such as raspberry and blackberry. On the palate we find silky and very fine tannins, with earthy character.
All the prestige of the so-called Amoureuses is contained in this Great Growth, considered by the Mugnier winery as "the most burgundian of Burgundy wine."
Finesse, delicacy and intensity are the key words in the definition of this 2013 vintage.
