Mongeard Mugneret Nuits St Georges "Les Plateaux" 2017 (B)
- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- BH88~91, WA91
- Pinot Noir
Like a number of wines in the range, generous wood fights a bit with the distinctly earthy and gamy dark berry fruit aromas. The supple yet punchy medium-bodied flavors possess good delineation on the moderately rustic, powerful and structured finish that flashes both good complexity and length. - BH88-91
The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Plateaux is showing beautifully, bursting from the glass with an inviting bouquet of blackberries, red berries, exotic spices, orange rind and a deft framing of toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, supple and textural, this is a charming, enveloping Nuits, its fleshy core of fruit framed by melting tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a penetrating and sapid finish. It's already drinking well. - WA91
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. They are full and firm, with a deep intense colour.
Their aromas are rich and complex, suggestive of cherries, blackcurrants, animal pelts and truffles. Their high tannin content provides them with a very firm structure, and the harmonious interplay between the tannins and the inherently rounded nature of these wines makes them full-bodied and solid.- 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.
