Wine Maker

Frédéric Mugnier

"Frédéric Mugnier produces fine, fragrant, and scintillating wines since 1998. Thanks to the constant quality of its wines he is considered to be one of the best winemakers in Burgundy."

Soil Specificity

The soils in Côte de Nuits result on the consequences of the uplift of the Alps and the collapse of the plain of the Saône. The vines are mainly planted on limestone slopes. At the summit sits the famous "stone of premeaux", giving Romanée-Conti, Richeboug, and La Tâche outstanding wines. The soils are formed of calcareous scree, limestone, and red silt with a large diversity of terroir contributing to the typicality of the Côte de Nuits wines.

A Passionate Lineage

Jacques-Frederic Mugnier is the fifth generation of his family at Chateau de Chambolle-Musigny. The history of the Domaine begins in the 1880s with Frédéric Mugnier’s great-great-grandfather purchasing the Chateau de Chambolle-Musigny, then the Clos de la Maréchale in 1902. After the WW2, only 4 hectares remained to the Mugniers. The estate changed dramatically in 2003, with the reinstatement of the Clos de la Maréchale in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
