Colour still blue-edged. Richer nose than the Vosne, this really is at another level. Silky fresh fruit, red and black interwoven, pure Pinot from Vosne, with just a touch of sweetness, so delicate it's hardly there. Really rather beautiful. Old vines, so 'plus tendre' says Marie-Andrée. Drinking range: 2028 - 2038 L&S (Oct 2020)

This is an even more accurate wine than the superb village number above and there is more tannin here, so while I like it every bit as much it will outlive its sibling. Very impressive, this Vosne pair is first class. Rating: 18.5+ Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Jan 2021)

(from a .80 ha parcel of ~70-year-old vines; 2018 was the first vintage for this wine). A slightly more restrained and even spicier nose reflects notes of hoisin and star anise along with violet, lavender and red and dark currant aromas. The middle weight flavors are not quite as rich though they are both finer and more finely detailed, all wrapped in a balanced, firm and lingering finale. This too is lovely and the natural class of Vosne is very much on display. One to strongly consider as this is a very fine villages. Drinking range: 2027 - Rating: 89-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2021)

The 2019 Vosne-Romanée La Colombière is an exquisite follow-up to the debut 2018 rendition, bursting from the glass with aromas of smoky berry fruit, rose petals, spices, dark chocolate and espresso roast. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, it's bright and lively, with beautifully refined tannins and a long, perfumed finish. Seamless and complete, this is a strikingly suave wine from the Mugneret family. Rating: 91-93 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)

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.
