Mugnier at Onda Mezzanine, winemakers dinner part II




Bresseskylling med lime:
Kjente ikke limen i særlig grad, foie grasen kom for meg kanskje litt i kamp med kyllingen og ble noe rik, men det er uansett nyanser. Vinene fikk noe å bryne seg på, hvor de for meg tapte. 

2005 Mugnier Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Marechale:
Bright ruby. Spoiled nose by detergents, smelling only of soap first. New wine was poured and layers of fruit, scented tones, floral and touch of leather. Fresh acidity, elegant palate, ripe feel, ripe tannins, lovely balance, rounded texture, long. 92


2006 Mugnier Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Marechale:
Bright ruby. Scented, fruity, layered and nuanced, superb nose. Maybe ever so slightly herbal. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, slightly rough still, was decanted for about fourty minutes, could have had longer. Slightly herbal finish, long. 91

2007 Mugnier Nuits-Saint-Georges 1 er Cru Clos de la Marechale:
Bright ruby. Slightly scented, red berries, nuanced nose. Almost flirting. Just as open as a bottle seven hours back, but slightly tighter tannins. Long finish. Needs an hour in decanter now. 91


And med endive og fiken:
For meg ble endiven litt bitter mot Musignyen, men en deilig rett. Nok en burgunder som ikke helt klarer jobben mot and i min munn.

2007 Mugnier Musigny:
Bright ruby. Scented, nuanced, layered, ads more and more with air. Complex nose. Gorgeous even. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, very elegant. Nuanced and flirting as few, very long. Some would dislike it's leaness, but they lack perspective. 94


2009 Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny:
Ruby. Scented, flirting, elegant nose, red berries. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fairly fruity, refreshing and almost playful. Good length. 89

2009 Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuees:
Ruby. Again scented, red berries and some vanilla notes. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, a bit rough at the moment, tannins needs time. Otherwise elegant and fruity, long finish. 92+


Trøffel brie:
En mektig sak så sent i måltidet, men bevares så godt. 

Mango og kokos:
En utrolig frisk og livlig dessert som ble helt magisk mot vinen. 

2010 Leitz Geisenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Eiswein:
Pale golden. Apples and minerals, very pure nose. Fresh and lively acidity, lovely balance, refreshing and long. Not too complex but so playful. 92

A very dedicated winemaker who is both an engineer and has worked for ten years as an airliner pilot for Sabena and British Airways amongst others. Very passionate and interesting man to talk to with a wast knowledge on many subjects.

La Cabotte i NSG og Le Millesime i Chambolle, rett over veien for Mugnier er restauranter som anbefales i Burgund av Mugnier selv. 

Desverre var det gjennomgående oppvaskmiddelrester i samtlige glass, så noen viner kan ha fremstått under sitt egentlige nivå selv om glassene etterhvert ble grundig skyllet med vin.



Bygget i seg selv har utrolig mange fine detaljer som man bare blir sittende og beundre under middagen. Men en detalj som jeg personlig får ubehag ved hver gang jeg tenker på det er maleriene. Disse egner seg ikke i en restaurant for meg. Ikke grunnet motivet, men måten de ble til på.

Men stemningen rundt bordet med mat, drikke og selskap var rett og slett magisk. En kveld som ikke forsvinner ut av minnet på lenge. En herlig ro under servering, det bare flyter, tallerkener kommer og går, glass byttes, og alt føles symbiotisk. Smil og latter på alle bord. Takk for en fortryllende kveld.

Raveneau at Onda Mezzanine, Winemakers dinner part I






Tasting notes in English, a few words about the food in Norwegian.


Noen korte kommentarer om maten på Onda denne kvelden underveis, fra en som er amatør på feltet. Det er mer ment som en stemningsrapport enn en anmeldelse.

Jacquesson Cuvée no 736:
Pale lemon yellow, tiny bubbles. Apples, touch of lilies of the valley and chalk. Fresh acidity, elegant mousse, refined and elegant palate, needs a bit of time for me, good length. This is my note from last week. This bottle was a bit rounder and more open. 91



Egg med caviar
Nydelig rett med utsøkt salt kaviar som var svært forfriskende. Stemningen ble god rundt bordet.

2002 Leitz Berg Schlossberg Riesling Trocken:
Pale golden. Floral, scented, lemons, apples and some minerals. Fresh acidity, elegant palate, refreshing and youthful, good length. 89

2009 Leitz Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling Trocken:
(Magnum) Pale lemon yellow. Apples, some minerals, easy going nose. Fresh acidity, elegant palate, lovely balance, good length. 88



Sjøkreps med estragon.
En for meg litt "tung" sjøkrepsrett, både i tekstur og smak, men overhode ikke kraftig. Personlig ønsker jeg meg mer renhet og letthet i sjøkreps. Litt uinspirert om enn svært vakker.

2005 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux:
Pale lemon yellow. Apples, minerals, almost flinty, some yellow fruits, complex. Fresh acidity, ripe fruit, lemony and somewhat fatty minerals, long finish. 91

2008 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux:
Pale lemon yellow. Apples, minerals, almost floral, touch of grapefruit. Almost flinty minerals with air. Fresh acidity, elegant if a bit full body, refreshing and long. 92

2009 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux:
Pale lemon yellow. Apples, minerals, ripe, touch of yellow fruits. Layered. Fresh acidity, riper style for Raveneau, long. 91



Hummer med gulrot:
En eventyrlig rett, flott nesten lett karamellisert hummer og intens hummer sjy, dette var en rett som kommer til å sitte. 

1995 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Forêt:
Pale lemon yellow. Apples, minerals, touch of lemons. Fresh acidity, elegant and refreshing palate, layered, not that intense, towards flirting. With air very nuanced. Long. 93

Torsk i soppbuljong og trøffel:
Rikt og intenst og allikevel herlig nyansert og nesten friskt. Gnocchien kom med små fargesprakende glimt, her begynner Heini*** sin torsk å få en utfordrer.



2003 Raveneau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur:
Pale lemon yellow. Fresh nose, lime, apples, slight wax touch is the only indikator of the vintage on the nose. Fresh acidity, riper palate, somewhat "full", lacks a bit of nuances. Long creamy mineraly palate. 91

2006 Raveneau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur:
Pale lemon yellow. Fresh nose, apples, lime, oysters, layered and nuanced. Fresh acidity, lively lemony palate, refined, subdued and refreshing, very long. 93

For me there seems to have been a change of style starting with the 09 vintage, and for the better. The 07's and 08's are a bit full, a bit ripe and even if lovely, lacks a bit of nuance. Normally I find the 09's a bit fleshier when tasted beside their 08 or 07 equivalent, here they are the most nuanced, somewhat firmer and focused. The daughter from de Montille now makes the white. The future looks even brighter.
