Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg

Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg and Domaine Georges Mugneret have, from the 2008 vintage onward, combined as one fiscal entity to become Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg, so ending (or adding to) the naming confusion. The responsibility for the domaine has been for some years been that of Georges Mugneret's daughters Marie-Christine and Marie Andrée, although their mother still plays her part. With one a pharmacist and the other an oenologist, the domaine was always going to be in safe hands as far as the winemaking was concerned, and these are top-flight burgundies with that elusive balance of enough concentration allied with delicacy of expression and the capability of ageing well. Recently all the vineyard management has been brought in-house (the domaine previously relied on two métayeurs for part of the vineyard) and the quality has reached new heights.
