Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret

Burgundy, burgundy France

Alexandre and his wife Justine are ninth-generation custodians of Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, with Alexandre having taken over the winemaking in recent years. The domaine is located in Vosne-Romanée in the heart of the Côte de Nuits.

The Domaine has vineyards in 35 appellations totalling over 30 hectares, ranging from Villages to Grand Cru. Alexandre has a passion for Pinot Noir and predominantly makes red wines. Sustainable viticulture, 'la lutte raisonnée', is practised with a focus on soil health, using manure and compost to improve it. A lot of thought goes into selecting the perfect, fine-grain oak for maturation. Alexandre personally picks his own 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 for them. Alexandre keeps the barrels for up to five years.

The wines from Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret are known for their elegance and intensity. Alexandre’s use of new oak ranges from 30-40% for his Villages and Premier Crus, up to 100% new oak for his Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru, depending on the vintage. The Nuits-Saint-Georges ‘Les Plateaux’ is hand harvested from a vineyard of 0.5 hectares, which borders the Premier Cru vineyards. It is a wine of elegance and precision with flavours of bright red cherry fruit, violets and sweet spice, which linger on the finish. The Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru ‘Les Orveaux’ is planted near a small forest, just next to Echézeaux Grand Cru. It is aged in 40% new oak for 12-18 months, and boasts aromas of rich red fruit compote and floral notes on the nose. The tannins are fine grained and well integrated, giving excellent structure to the wine.
