Tasting this after the Vosne Romanée there is a distinctly more primary feeling to the fruit. Ripe, black flesh and some sweet plums too, then a bite of cherry skin which kicks into a fizzing energy here too. Lovely density, yet with lovely flow. Graceful, but with intent. This is delicious. That red fruit edge on the finish gives a lift and a further bounce of energy. Ripe fruit so well managed and just enough dark edge too to add complexity Drinking range: 2020 - 2026 L&S (Nov 2018)

This is also quite aromatically elegant with its slightly higher-toned, cool and airy array of softly spiced essence of various red berries. The marginally finer middle weight flavors aren’t quite as dense but they’re a bit more complex on the firmer and more youthfully austere finish that offers just a bit more length. While this is only marginally better, it should ultimately make the more complete wine. Drinking range: 2027 - Rating: 91-93 Allen Meadows, 2019)

More focused and a bit tighter and leaner than the village Vosne. Less generous. Drinking range: 2022 - 2028 Rating: 16++ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2019)

As usual, the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots is one of the highlights of the range this year, soaring from the glass with a dramatic bouquet of cassis, wild berries, spices, incense and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and concentrated, with a deep, layered mid-palate, juicy acids and a long, expansive finish. Rating: 92-94 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Chaignots 1er Cru, whose production is slightly down from the previous year, offers an enthralling mélange of red and black fruit laced with peony and violet. The lightly spiced palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, and sappy black fruit and veins of blue fruit toward the Vosne-like finish. While not the best Chaignots that I have encountered from Mugneret-Gibourg, it is just delicious to drink even at this stage. Drinking range: 2022 - 2038 Rating: 90-92 Neal Martin, 2019)

The texture here is rather good. It is also on the crunchy side. Herbal almost, but the texture is finer. It is riper too. Unexpected, I thought the Vignes Rondes might be better in this dry and hot year, but no the Chaignots wins on finesses and intensity. Rating: 18 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2018)

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.
