Description

The 2014 Vosne Romanée Village is from vines tucked just behind the family maison. The 2014 Vosne Romanée Village has a crisp, quite detailed bouquet that is tight at first but opens nicely in the glass. Even for a village cru there is fine mineralité here. The palate is tensile on the entry with a pastille like purity -- tart red cherries, fresh if not exuding immense depth towards the finish. Just pure Pinot Noir -- no more, no less.– WA88~90

Here too the elegant and notably spicy nose is composed by notes of super fresh dark pinot fruit, herbal tea, plum, violet and sandalwood nuances. The vibrant and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors exhibit lovely length and balance on the firm and dusty and not really austere finale. This is very Vosne in style and recommended plus it should drink well on the younger side if desired.– BH89

The Winery

The family settled in Vosne-Romanée in 1930 and now the Domain is managed by the third generation, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée who share the same passion for vine and wine.

Mugneret is a well-known name among winemakers in the Côte de Nuits, particularly in Vosne-Romanée, where it has existed for many generations. It derives from "meunier" of which "mugnier" is a regional form.

The name Gibourg originates from the plain of the river Saône, among grain farmers. The family settled in Vosne-Romanée in 1930 and now the Domain is managed by the third generation, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée who share the same passion for vine and wine.

Jeanne Gibourg (1906-1997) married André Mugneret (1905-1986) in 1928 and together they created Domaine MUGNERET-GIBOURG in 1933. They produced Bourgogne Rouge, Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Echezeaux Grand Cru.

Georges Mugneret, their only son (1929-1988), an opthamologist in Dijon, quickly decided to pursue the family profession in parallel with his own career in medicine, enlarging and enhancing the family estate with successive purchases of plots: Clos Vougeot Grand Cru in 1953, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru in 1971, Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru in 1977, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru « Les Vignes Rondes » in 1982 and Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Feusselottes" in 1985.

Thus was created the Domaine Georges Mugneret.

Georges Mugneret met his future wife Jacqueline, a school teacher, in 1958, while serving in Algeria. Upon their return to France they got married. They had two daughters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée. Georges Mugneret died in 1988. Marie-Christine resigned her position as a chemist to specialize in oenology. She took over the activity with her mother. Marie-Andrée joined them several years later, after she obtained her diploma in oenology from the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon.

In 2009 Domaines Mugneret-Gibourg and Georges Mugneret combined to give birth to Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg.

The same year Jacqueline retired, and today the estate is headed by the two sisters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée.

The family pattern repeats itself... Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée each have two daughters!

The domain might be passed down from mothers to daughters...
