Description

A rich, silky red, exuding rose, strawberry, cherry and cinnamon aromas and flavors. Harmonious and long, with fine intensity midpalate through the finish. Very pure and long, echoing the fruit and floral notes in the aftertaste. Drink now through 2032. 125 cases imported.-WS93

A subtle but not invisible application of wood frames the spicy aromas of plum, violet and a hint of tea. There is a bit more volume and richness if less evident muscularity to the medium weight, fleshy and caressing flavors that culminate in a highly refreshing and balanced finish. If this can add a bit more depth with a few years of cellaring it should merit the upper end of my projected range.-BH88-90

Wines from the Vosne Romanée appellation are all of excellent quality, as all the vineyards are located on sites and soils that are highly favourable to the production of good wines. Their distinctive quality is the elegance. Structured by discreet tannins and an unobtrusive acid content, they are wonderfully mellow. They have substance and linger long on the palate. Very aromatic, they highlight scents of cherries, strawberries and woodland undergrowth in an elegant combination of fruits and spices.-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.
