Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits St. Georges Premier 'Chaignots' Mugneret-Gibourg 2008
92-95 points Fine Wine Review: ...the Nuits-Chaignots... is floral, dark, and spicy in the nose, very much reflecting the proximity to Vosne. In the mouth, the wine is spicy and mineral with purity, depth, and great precision to its red fruits. The tannins are well-rounded. (Issue #128; 2010)
Mugneret is a well-known name among winemakers in the Côte de Nuits, particularly in Vosne-Romanée, where it has existed for many generations. The name Gibourg has its origins in the plains of the Saône River, among grain farmers, before the family settled in Vosne-Romanée at the beginning of the century. The surface area of Domaine Georges-Mugneret is 6 hectares, or almost 15 acres, with an average production of 32,000 bottles. Visits by appointment.
