VOSNE ROMANÉE

2011 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg

EN PRIMEUR

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)

They make village wines of delicacy and finesses…clay soil here….65 year old vines and also some in champs Goudin, which lies beneath. There is spice and juicy red ripe red fruit on the nose. Lively and satin on the palate; deep ripe red fruit, a basket of succulent of summer frost bursting with freshness. Really rather elegant and juicy, fine and silky tannins, flowing. A lovely VR. Top notch.Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 2012)

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 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.

BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ

OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
