2014 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Slender, but full enough, supple texture filled with expressive fruit, just a bit more drive and a touch of tannic force. After tasting it we walk through to the next cellar still with an echo of ripe fresh raspberry juice clinging to the palate. Drinking range: 2021 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Bright ruby-red. Very expressive aromas of cherry, smoky minerals and coffee. Lovely silky, spicy, mineral-driven village wine with intense flavors of dark cherry, raspberry and chocolate, plus a hint of menthol. Still needs a couple years to absorb its dusty, slightly chocolatey tannins. Dry and classic. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 89 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Mar 2017)
25% new oak. Very appealing red fruit aroma. It is very silky and supple. Fine texture to the tannins. Fresh and yet seductive too. Lovely balance. You feel the cooler and crisper vintage in the freshness. Lucid. Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2016)
Pinot Noir with depth, purity, finesse impeccable balance, structure and great length on the palate. Always one of the most delicate and refined wines of Vosne. Beautifully perfumed with seamless tannins and use of oak. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 95 Andrew Howard, Decanter(Oct 2016)
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 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.
