Description

Once again moderate wood is present on the more obviously menthol-infused aromas of red currant, cherry, Asian-style spice and a hint of dried orange peel. The middle weight flavors also possess a highly seductive mid-palate mouthfeel that contrasts considerably with the rustic, warm and slightly disjointed finish. As the description suggests this is somewhat awkward today but the underlying material appears to be present such that there is a reasonable chance that ultimately it will harmonize. - BH89-92

The glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of cherries, cassis, candied peel and incense, framed by some spicy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and powerful, with satiny tannins, an ample core of fruit, succulent acids and a long, oak-inflected but persistent finish. This shows considerable promise.- WA93+

The aromas of cherry, licorice, cinnamon and sandalwood are enticing in this red, translating to fruit and spice flavors matched by dense tannins. Still, this is lacy and supple, with a lingering aftertaste of baking spice and macerated cherry. Best from 2024 through 2042. - WS95

The Winery

The village of Vosne Romanee entered in the Burgundy history in 636. It was at the beginning of the XVII century that is first noted the name "Mongeard" in the registry. For more than eight generations, the Mongeard family has been established in Vosne Romanee, right in the midst of the Cote de Nuits, producing wine with an utmost respect for tradition.

Since then and through all the generations, the family is committed to their passion: Vine and Wine. The Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, renamed since 1945, now operates a large vineyard in the purist of the burgundy tradition, My grand-father was Eugene Mongeard and my grand-mother Edmee Mugneret.
