Musigny, Domaine Mugnier 2011
The embodiment of pure sensuality, the 2011 Musigny is supremely beautiful. Balance, symmetry and a total sense of finesse are the calling cards. The silkiest of tannins support a finish laced with bright red fruit, rose petals, spices and dried herbs.

In somewhat stark contrast to the Amoureuses there is lovely freshness to the ripe but airy nose that is wonderfully broad with its aromas of red and black currant, violet and exotic tea aromas. There is a brilliant mouth feel as the structured yet incredibly fine large-scaled flavors convey a real sense of power and muscle but it's delivered with the grace of a ballerina on the hugely long mocha-infused finish. This reminds me a bit of the 2000 Musigny that drank well young and is still drinking well today.
