Really quite a big wine, showing taut and quite closed, as usual some quite hairy tannins, but there's so much going on, lots of depth, lots of complexity, its very muscular and powerful. Drinking range: 2035 - 2050 L&S (Oct 2020)

It is so encouraging to see a good few Grands Crus stand up in this vintage. I usually advise people to be very careful and pick out elite Premiers Crus rather than trade up, but in 2019 this wine and a decent selection of others look smart. Classy, layered, regal and super-smooth, this is another winner from GMG. Rating: 18.5+ Matthew Jukes (Jan 2021)

(from a parcel situated by the Château at the top of the slope designated as Montiotes Hautes). Here too generous wood sets off earthier and less spicy aromas of various dark berries along with a mentholated top note. The rich and caressing yet quite powerful and muscular big-bodied flavors possess a velvety mid-palate texture that contrasts somewhat with the austere and noticeably warm finale. This wine always ages extremely well and 2019 should continue that excellent track record. Drinking range: 2034 - Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, (Jan 2021)

One of the highlights of my three months of tastings was the 2019 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru, a magical cuvée that mingles notes of cherries, plums and wild berries with nuances of peony, dark chocolate, oriental spices and musk. Full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, its sumptuously textural attack segues into a concentrated, layered mid-palate, concluding with a perfumed finish of unerring precision. A glass of this wine will convince anyone that the Clos Vougeot is more than capable of living up to its lofty historic reputation, and it will be worth a special effort to seek out.

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.
