Description

Wines under the "Nuits" appellation are the most robust, full-bodied and strong in tannins of all Côtes-de-Nuits wines. They are usually ready to drink about 4 or 5 years after being bottled, and will age perfectly for about ten years.

The geographic location and exposure grant the wine its strong tannins, its robust and sometimes slightly austere character, but it also is rich and full-bodied with good balance. It always has a nice long finish and the last note is tannic and characteristic. The result is a wine of character that will not leave anyone indifferent. - Winemaker's Notes

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.

Chateau Latour

With attractive, juicy fruit, this wine has as much freshness as it does structure. The palate is warm and open with blackberry fruits that are rounded and soft. Spice and some tannins show through on the finish....
Chateau Rauzan Segla
$380.00
At first disjointed and a bit diffuse, the 1989 Rauzan-Segla has turned itself around in bottle and is now an outstanding effort. The very forward nose of black fruits intermixed with Provencal herbs, underbrush,...
