Description
 
The Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret wines are outstanding and bear all the hallmarks of piercing perfumes, intensity yet elegance on the palate, and a beguiling tannin structure. One of the most attractive aspects of these wines is the superb use of oak and the way it is balanced with the fruit. Vincent Mongeard and his wife Anne are the current custodians of Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, which was founded when Vincent’s grandfather and grandmother pooled their vineyard resources in the 1920s. Vincent is a perfectionist and his pragmatic approach is impressive. He adopts many of the practices of organics and biodynamics, although each of his vineyards requires a different approach. In the cellar, he handles each parcel of grapes in the way that he sees fit. Vincent has bought his own French Allier oak for years, seasoning it for two or three years, and then having the barrels made in the July before the vintage. The 33 hectares of vineyard stretch across 35 different appellations, from Savigny in the south to Fixin in the north, and range from basic Bourgogne to holdings in Grand Crus such as Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux and Grands Echézeaux.

The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots comes from 0.39-hectares of 30-year-old vine. It has a timid bouquet at first, one that demands encouragement from the glass. It eventually unfurls to reveal a precise, pretty, almost Vosne-like bouquet. The palate is very refined, again quite Vosne-like (which is no surprise as it is located on the same vein of terroir as Malconsorts), filigree tannin segueing into a precise, minerally finish. This is excellent and it may merit a higher score down the line. Wine Advocate 92
