So bright, very vital crimson. Still quite closed (like Ponsot's and de Vogüé's) on the nose but lovely succulent fruit on the palate. Bitter cherry flavours and crunchy taffeta texture - though not much perfume at just over a year old. Not massive but a wonderful texture - this should certainly get there in the end. The fruit positively soars already. Extremely fine tannins. 18.5/20 points. (JR)
Bright, deep red. Knockout aromas and flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, crushed stone and smoky minerality. Wonderfully deep, tangy and sweet, with a captivating creamy texture making this deceptively tastable today. Impressive today for its volume, and finishes very long, broad and classically dry, with substantial fine-grained tannins. As delicious as this is right now, its overall balance suggests it will reward a decade of aging. For his part, Mugnier says that virtually every vintage of his Musigny needs ten years in the bottle. (ST)
Mugnier’s wines of the vintage, his 2007 Musigny exudes ripe, vanilla- and star anise-tinged black raspberry and cassis, underlain by clean, marrow-like meatiness. Already satiny in texture, yet buoyant, this finishes with dark-fruited, forest floor-inflected, palate-staining persistence yet a soothing, enveloping personality that is anything but palate-straining. Even though this is an unusually approachable example of its kind, few Burgundian Pinots of its vintage, I suspect, will justify the 15 or more years of glory that I would anticipate from this Musigny. (DS)
Monsieur Mugnier’s 2007 Musigny is one of the wines of the vintage, and though it is still very early days for this wine, its ultimate quality is very, very evident. The simply gorgeous nose wafts from the glass in a blend of red and black cherries, a touch of cocoa, roses, a beautifully complex base of iron-infused soil tones, mustard seed, woodsmoke, orange zest and a deft framing of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very sappy at the core (particularly for an ’07), with stunning backend energy and grip, laser-like focus, fine-grained tannins and magical balance on the very, very long, classic finish. A great, great 2007! (Drink between 2020-2060)
