Mongeard Mugneret Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 2014
- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- Pinot Noir
The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from 1.44-hectares of 40- to 68-year-old vine and is matured entirely in new oak. It has a clean, pure and quite intense bouquet with dark plum, raspberry and rose petals scents that are beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, good depth, a slight earthiness underneath the dark berry fruit mixed with black pepper and sage, fanning out gently towards the sturdy, truffle-tinged finish. Give this several years in the cellar, because it is a very well crafted and sophisticated Grands-Echézeaux.-WA94
An attractively fresh and layered nose presents a spicy array of red and dark currant that is trimmed in discreet wood and floral wisps. There is excellent punch and delineation to the supple and velvety flavors that terminate in a youthfully austere finish that offers a bit more depth and length. While this is not especially dense there is better concentration compared to that of the Clos de Vougeot or Echézeaux.-BH90-92
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.
