2018 Georges Noellat Beaune 1er Clos de la Mignotte



“(this tiny ~.25 ha clos is monopole of the domaine). A more elegant and more restrained nose flashes a mix of dark raspberry, plum, violet and similar earth nuances. The medium weight flavors aren’t quite as dense but they’re definitely more refined while offering a touch of minerality on the tension-filled and youthfully austere finale that isn’t quite as structured. (89-92)/2028+” Allan Meadows

“Fine mid purple, touch of reduction, this is normally quite a gentle site. Clean pure and stylish in the mouth, with a terrific elegance at the finish and some crisp chalky tannins nicely infused with the fruit. Fine length, a very graceful Beaune.” 89-92 Jasper Morris

“Fleshy and gourmand, the 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de la Mignotte exhibits aromas of sweet berry fruit, cherries and plums mingled with black truffle and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, charming and enveloping, with lively acids and a generous core of fruit, it’s open and demonstrative.” 91 William Kelley
