The 2018 Musigny Grand Cru is bold and assertive on the nose with darker fruit than Mugnier’s Musigny: dense and focused, fine delineation yet just missing the little complexity. The palate is framed by thickset, bold and saturated tannins, a mixture of red and blue fruit, grippy and assertive. There is a heaviness in this Musigny not apparent in three others tasted alongside, a bit burly and demonstrative. But you have to ask, where is the charm. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2018 red tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2060
