Mongeard Mugneret entered into the world of Burgundy wine in the 18th century; now its entire holding covers over 25 hectare, across 22 appellations
Always an excellent source for excellent Burgundy wines at reasonable price
Vincent Mongeard describes 2009 as a "very clean crop... first time that I have ever seen this kind of quality linked to this kind of quality and that includes 1990 and 1999...
...I really like the quality of the 09's because not only are they excellent but there is a tenderness to the wines that makes them very appealing"
This wine comes from a 0.63 hectare of parcel in Vougeot, with 85% new oak used
Burghound: 90-92 "Much more temperate wood influence allows the fresh and intensely earthy red currant and humus suffused aromas to shine and does not alter the texture of the sappy, focused and overtly powerful flavors that possess fine complexity and excellent length. This is a classic Clos de Vougeot." (Jan 2011)
