Vineyard Clos Vougeot

Their parcel here in Clos Vougeot is a gem, right between Meo-Camuzet's vines and the parcel of Domaine Lamarche. The pretty nose does not give too much away. inviting soft fruit - and then pow, the palate is super. Gently building power and push. Less gloss for now, less obvious richness than expected at the outset. The mineral dusting and fine tannins add spice and pep and life - the fruit remains more tightly furled. Firm, purple flesh and some softer red berries are delicious but subtly done. Clean, broad and with calm energy and life. A wine with a future. again this is super attractive. Drinking range: 2022 - 2030 L&S (Nov 2018)

The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a lovely bouquet that unfurls from the glass to reveal raspberry, hints of dark chocolate, cedar and undergrowth; there is a touch of mintiness here. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and beautifully balanced with vivid red berry fruit, plus a liberal sprinkling of white pepper on the finish. Excellent. Drinking range: 2023 - 2042 Rating: 96 Neal Martin, 2020)

(from a parcel situated by the Château at the top of the slope designated as Montiotes Hautes). More modulated but hardly discreet wood influence stops just short of fighting with the spice and earth-infused red currant-scented nose. Once again there is excellent energy to the broad-shouldered and intense flavors that possess the usual level of youthful austerity on the dusty, sneaky long and powerful finish. As is usually the case with this wine at this stage of its development, this is presently very compact and is going to require at least moderate patience for it to unwind and flesh out. Drinking range: 2035 - Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, 2019)

One of the wines of the vintage in the Côte de Nuits, the 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru offers up a stunning bouquet of sweet wild berries, orange rind, rose petal and raspberry that's complemented by savory bass-notes of smoked meats and espresso roast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and complete, with a deep core, juicy acids and fine-grained, chalky tannins, concluding with a long, floral finish. It's easy to forget Clos Vougeot's proximity to Musigny, but this cuvée often offers a pointed reminder. Rating: 94-96 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)

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.
