Mugnier's NSG 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale has a longer track record than this newer name in town, but take a closer look and you'll see Galeyrand's Les Retraits deserves the same attention. Planted in 1925 and 1932, next to the Clos de la Maréchale, this Villages wine follows very different protocol. Whole cluster fermentation gives a ton of spice and crunch to these ultra-concentrated clusters. With minimal amounts of sulfur, Les Retraits has an "open for business" sort of immediacy full of saturated dark fruits and minerality.
