Just a touch richer and fuller than the Bourgogne. That classic Vosne tapestry of pointilliste spices and velvet fruit. Bright and floral too, with succulence and length. L&S (Dec 2012)

Sweet rose petals, red berries and mint lift out of the glass in the 2011 Vosne-Romanée. An attractive, mid-weight wine, the 2011 has shut down quite a bit in bottle, so I would give it a few years to come around. Floral and savory notes reappear on the finish. 2016-2021 Rating: 88+ Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Apr 2014)
Medium red. Aromas of black raspberry, licorice and chocolate. Dense and juicy, with firm acidity giving power and thrust to the middle palate. Finishes with dark berries and a floral nuance Rating: 87-90 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Feb 2013)
(from 5 different parcels located in La Columbière, Champs Goudins and Le Pré de la Folie, which are contiguous vineyards located below the village and above the Route Nationale). Here the expressive nose is a bit more elegant with essence of plum and violet aromas that are trimmed in notes of anise and sandalwood. There is a silky texture to the utterly delicious and seductively proportioned medium-bodied flavors that are not especially concentration but they are harmonious and impeccably well-balanced. 2016+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)
Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg was founded in 1933 on the marriage of Jeanne Gibourg and André Mugneret. Holdings then consisted of Bourgogne, village Nuits, village Vosne and Echezeaux. Their son Georges, an opthalmologist by day, added to the vineyards, but his acquisitions (Nuits 1ers Crus Vignes Rondes and Chaignots, Chambolle 1er Cru Feusselottes, and Grands Crus Clos Vougeot and Ruchottes Chambertin) were kept separate as Domaine Georges Mugneret.
On Georges' death in 1988, his widow Jacqueline and daughter Marie-Christine took over. Marie-Andrée, the younger daughter joined them a little later having completed her studies as an oenologist. In 2009 Jacqueline retired and the two domaine names were put together to become Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg, ending the prior confusion of labels.The sisters have proved more than safe hands as far as the winemaking is concerned, and these are top-flight Burgundies with that elusive balance of enough concentration allied with delicacy of expression and the capability to age well. 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, its wines some of the most sought-after in the Côte de Nuits.In 2017 Marie-Christine 's daughter Lucie joined the domaine, and Marion and Fanny, daughters of Marie-Andrée are now also part of the team.
