96-98The Wine Advocate

...bouquet of cherries, wild berries, exotic spices, peonies, rose petals and sweet soil tones. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with a layered and concentrated core, strikingly refined tannins, lively acids and a long, resonant finish.

96Vinous / IWC

...fragrant red berries mixed with dried blood, undergrowth and wilted rose petal, a touch of orange peel emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very intense black fruit and a little more depth and grip than the Ruchottes at the moment.

The big-bodied flavors possess a highly seductive texture that is at once opulent and velvety, all wrapped in a robust, powerful and exceptionally firm finish that exhibits outstanding length.


Domaine Georges Mugneret (Mugneret-Gibourg)

Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg in Vosne-Romanee, in Burgundy’s Cote-de-Nuits, has a history that sounds like a fairy tale with a happy ending. Founded in 1933 by the young married couple Andre Mugneret and Jeanne Gibourg, they passed it on to their only son, Georges Mugneret, who gave up his career as an ophthalmologist to run the domaine. He became one of Burgundy’s most respected winemakers and ambassadors. When he died in 1988 his wife Jacqueline and their two daughters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andree, took over the business. Today the daughters and their mother run the 22.5-acre estate with help from Marie-Christine’s daughter Lucie, who in 2018 joined the management team. Lucie has another sister and two first cousins, both women, so there is every possibility that the estate will someday be passed on to another generation of female vignerons. The domaine includes Grand Cru parcels in Ruchottes-Chambertin, Clos Vougeot and Echezeaux. There are also Premier Cru parcels in Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-St.-Georges. Clive Coates notes that “these wines are fullish, concentrated, very stylish and extremely well-balanced…This is a fine domaine.”

Clos de Vougeot is a walled vineyard that dominates the tiny commune of Vougeot in Burgundy’s Nuits-St.-Georges. The 124-acre Grand Cru vineyard includes a historic chateau that in 1945 was purchased by the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, an organization devoted to promoting the traditions of Burgundy and its wines. The impressive chateau is the organization’s headquarters. Clos de Vougeot was established as a vineyard by Cistercian monks in the 12th century, then sold off to private owners after the French Revolution. The vineyard is unusual for a Grand Cru in that it includes land that runs down to the main road. The soil is light limestone with sand. Principal landowners are Chateau de la Tour, with 13 acres; Meo-Camuzet, 7.5 acres; Rebourseau, 5.5 acres; Louis Jadot, 5.3 acres; and Leroy, 5 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
