Mongeard-Mugneret Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits la Croix 2006

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. This Pinot Noir is moderately intense in colour with an elegant and fairly powerful bouquet dominated by Morello cherry, blackcurrant and raspberries aromas. With age these will develop towards strawberries and touches of woodland undergrowth. Subtle, with discreet tannins and low acidity, this wine has a light, open structure, giving it elegance, delicacy and finesse.

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.

    A concentrated and age-worthy Pinot from 50 year old vines. The wine sees time in new barrel (35%) and has the structure to age but is also possessed of enough berry fruit to be approachable young.
