2019 Mongeard-Mugneret Hautes Cotes De Nuits Les Dames
2019 Mongeard-Mugneret Hautes Cotes De Nuits Les Dames The sight of this 2019 wine is clearly a deep ruby garnet. The nose is drenched in a slight acidity, light berries, pear/citrus, minerals, and a minute leathery complexion. I’m used to a Belle Glos Pinot and this is completely in another dimension. It’s a medium complexity and finish, but nonetheless, a great wine in its varietal. It’s sweet without too much tartness. The finish is moderate and simple. I’d probably buy again.
The village of Vosne-Romanée lies between Dijon and Beaune in the heart of the Côte de Nuits region, near the prestigious Château du Clos Vougeot and Nuits St Georges.
For more than eight generations, the Mongeard family has been established in Vosne-Romanée since the year 1620, right in the midst of the Côte de Nuits, producing wine with an utmost respect for tradition.
The Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, renamed since 1945, now operates a large vineyard in the purist of the burgundy tradition. My grand-father was Eugène Mongeard and my grand-mother Edmée Mugneret.
The property accounts today for approximately 30 hectares, spread on 35 different appellations producing white Burgundy issued from the Chardonnay grape, but also essentially red wines issued from the Pinot Noir grape in the best climates of the Côte.
