Domaine Mongeard Mugneret 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Vincent Mongeard and his wife Anne are the current custodians of this domaine, which was founded when Vincent’s grandfather and grandmother pooled their vineyards resources in the 1920s. Today, they have over 30 hectares of vineyard, stretching from Savigny in the south to Fixin in the north, and ranging from basic Bourgogne to holdings in Grand Crus like Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Echezaux and Grands Echezaux. The 40-55 year old vines are Guyot pruned. In the spring severe debudding takes place to regulate the crop. A green harvest is carried out in the summer to increase the chances of high quality and maturity. Harvest is always carried out by hand. Fixin wines are delicate in colour and have an excellent structure in which tannins usually play a dominant role, making these wines robust rather than subtle. They have a good acid content and are endowed with a solidity and substance which places them among wines that are best laid down for a period of time. When young they posses animal aromas suggestive of pelts and musk. These develop to give a more complex bouquet as the wine matures.

The village of Vosne Romanée entered in the Burgundy history in 636. Il was at the beginning of the 16th century that we first noted the name Mongeard in the registry. Since then and threw all the generations, the family is committed to their passion : Vine and Wine. The Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, renamed since 1945, now operates, in the purist of the burgundy tradition, a large vineyard, from the Côte de Nuits to the Côte de Beaune, from Marsannay to the south of Dijon to Puligny-Montrachet, including all the most prestigious villages of the Côte : Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot, Nuits Saint Georges and Savigny les Beaune, the centre of the exploitation remaining in Vosne Romanée.

This wine changed my view of french wine. I´ve always thought tha french wines lack of structure, body and tannins. Man, how I was wrong....when you smell this wine, it shows you, at least, 20 different aromas. When you drink it, it shows you 20 others, that had nothing to do with the ones you felt on the nose. Fabulous.
