Mongeard Mugneret Echezeaux Grand Cru 2017
- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- Pinot Noir
A brooding if moderately oaky nose grudgingly reveals its aromas of fresh black cherry and violet plus and lovely range of spice facets. There is a more refined if less powerful mouthfeel to the medium weight and tautly muscular flavors that possess slightly better depth on the more structured and youthfully austere finish. This beauty is built to age and is going to need it. - BH91-94
Echezeaux wines are a clear garnet or ruby red, the exact hue often varying considerably. When young these wines have vanilla-scented, smoky, woody aromas or a hint of torrefaction, combined with suggestions of red fruits and spices. After a few years the nose becomes vegetable or animal, with scents of mushrooms, truffles or woodland undergrowth. The great complexity of the bouquet makes this a wine both rich and feminine; fat and mellow, with fine, delicate and fairly supple tannins.
In the mouth the attack is spirited, the balance pleasant and there is a succulent fullness with aromas of red fruits.- Winemaker's Notes
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.
