Mongeard Mugneret Vosne Romanee 1C "En Orveaux" 2017 (B)
- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- Pinot Noir
A restrained but quite spicy nose reflects notes of dark raspberry and plenty of floral influences that include both violet and lavender. There is very fine detail to the energetic middle weight flavors that deliver excellent length on the delicious and refreshing finale. This is a wine of refinement and that impression is enhanced by the fine-grained tannins. - BH90~92
The wonderful exposure enjoyed by the Vosne Romanée premier cru "En Orveaux" vineyards endows these wines with a deep ruby colour and aromas of red fruits, blackcurrants and raspberries. Their robust and richly perfumed bouquet imbues them with a character at once silky and rustic. Their freshness and mellowness, combined with a certain sensuous vinosity renders them a worthy rival to other Vosne Romanée premier crus. This is a supremely well-balanced wine.- 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.
