Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Vosne Romanee 2018
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Village has turned out nicely, bursting from the glass with expressive aromas of rose petals, spices, wild berries and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, layered and invitingly perfumed, it's built around powdery tannins and succulent acids. Despite its deceptive charm, there's considerable structure here to sustain graceful evolution in the cellar.-WA
The Mongeard family dates its origins in the commune back to 1620. In the 1920s, the marriage of Eugene Mongeard to Edmee 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.
