A master winemaker at the top of his game, Frédéric (Freddy) Mugnier crafts some of Burgundy’s most silken, multidimensional, and transcendent Pinot Noirs in miniscule quantities.

The fifth-generation of the Mugnier family, Freddy took over the domaine in 1985. By reclaiming the Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru ‘Clos de la Maréchale’ vineyard in 2004 (previously leased to Domaine Faiveley) he increased the family’s existing holdings to 14ha, including old vines in Chambolle-Musigny villages, 1er Crus ‘Les Fuées’ and ‘Les Amoureuses’, and Grands Crus ‘Bonnes-Mares’ and ‘Le Musigny’.

Guided by his pragmatic engineering background as well as a detailed, rigorous approach to farming, Freddy produces sublime and deeply complex wines in miniscule quantities.

The 2021 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru ‘Clos de la Maréchale’ – a “delicious, delicate, and seductive” vintage, says Freddy – combines pretty, floral aromatics and vibrant red fruit laced with fine tannins. Irresistible young, this wine exemplifies the domaine’s ethereal, yet ageworthy style.
