Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret

Vosne Romanee
 

Jean Mongeard created a huge reputation for this domaine in the 1970s and 80s with 20 hectares of vineyards both opwned and en fermage. This large holding included vineyards in Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux, Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot and Vosne Romanee. 

In 1992 Jean was succeeded by his son Vincent as the winemaker - the domaine dates back to the 1920s when Eugene Mongeard married Mlle Mugneret with the original holding amounting to just five hectares. 

The domaine no longer uses weedkillers and the vineyards are all fertilised organically.  All the grapes are largely destemmed and the grand crus are aged in around 60% new oak with 40-50% used for the premier cru and village wines. There is no fining and only a light filtration. The result is wines that are full, rich and concentrated with elegance and ageability. Amazingly, the domaine makes more than 30 crus - five grand crus, nine premier crus, nine village and a further nine regional wines.
