Mongeard Mugneret Vosne Romanee 1C Les Orveaux 2013 (1500ml) (B)
- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- Pinot Noir
Here the wood treatment is a good deal more evident and it fights a bit with the aromas of menthol, spice, plum and black pinot fruit. There is a lovely minerality to the precise and tension-filled middle weight flavors that possess fine if not truly distinguished depth and length. This mildly toasty effort should drink well young if desired. - BH88-91
Richly, fruitily aromatic. Lots of oak sweetness on the palate but better balanced and the structure more filled out than in the Savigny Les Narbantons. Still rather drying on the finish, for the moment at least. Julia Harding MW - JR16/20
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.
