Re: TN: 2014 Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Les Chaignots

I think there are vast variations in the pricing of the Lignier wines, specfically the MSD VV and CDLR, in my experience. I've generally been able to find stuff for low prices with some work and a decent war chest for wine purchases. I see a lot of Lignier at what would be standard retail or less, ...

As a long time customer of a specific retailer of MG, the only time I saw significant price increases was when the tariffs kicked in. Other than that it was pretty gradual, except for some reason Feuselottes, which shot up.
Yeah, from 2014 to 2015 the Feuselottes went up ~20%.
