Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret — Over Two Decades of Great Red Burgundy in the Shop

Vosne-Romanée is full of Mugnerets, famous ones known through generations for producing great wines. The current winemaker at Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, Vincent Mongeard, is obviously not a Mugneret. But his grandmother was. And in 1945, when Vincent’s father, Jean Mongeard, decided to bottle his wines instead of selling off barrels to other estates, he combined the last names of his parents, who had worked the land before him, as the name of his winery.

Today, Vincent Mongeard works about 74 acres spread over 35 appellations. While the estate is based in Vosne-Romanée, he produces wines from some of the most hallowed parcels in all of Burgundy, including Richebourg, Grands-Échezeaux, Échezeaux , Clos de Vougeot, and Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots.

All parcels are worked sustainably (la lutte raisonée) with a focus on soil health. Fruit is harvested exclusively by hand and manually sorted in the winery. Fermentation begins naturally with indigenous yeasts.

Most wines are matured in a range of new and used oak barrels with meticulous attention to sourcing fine-grain oak from Nièvre and the Tronçais forest in Allier. The oak is cured at the domaine for 18-24 months and a local cooper assembles the barrels.

We are pleased to offer several vintages and appellations of the wines from Mongeard-Mugneret. These are all wines that have been kept under temperature control in our shop since their purchase on release.
