$73.95 Excl. tax

RP 91: An inviting bouquet of blackberries, red berries, exotic spices, orange rind and toasty new oak. Supple and textural, its fleshy core of fruit framed by melting tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a penetrating and sapid finish.

Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret is a Burgundy estate with a long history of making fine Pinot Noir wines in Vosne-Romanée.

The Mongeard family dates its origins in the commune back to 1620. In the 1920s, the marriage of Eugène Mongeard to Edmée Mugneret brought together vineyards from both families, increasing the size of the domaine. In 1945, their son Jean began estate-bottling the wine for the first time and releasing it commercially under the name Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret. Jean had taken over the estate and at 16 was selling its grapes to esteemed producers such Marquis d'Angerville and Henri Gouges. It was on Gouges' advice that Jean transitioned to bottling the wine himself.

The estate now has 30 hectares (75 acres) of vineyards in around 35 different vineyards, with an average vine age of more than 40 years.
