  • 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 2008 as "tres classique...the vintage was challenging but there have been worse years in terms of weather; the only problem with 2008 is that the yields were really pitiful...
  • ...I would compare 2008 to vintages that are very pinot in character, such as 1992 or 2002"
  • From vines planted in 1929, 80+ years ago, with 20% whole clusters used in this vintage

Burghound: 91-94
"Less evident if not invisible wood surrounds a distinctly floral and purple fruit nose laced with spice and earth notes that lead to more serious still dense and robust flavors that are overtly muscular in style yet the tannins are relatively refined, all wrapped in a balanced, long and palate staining finish. This is impressive." (Jan 2010)

 

Wine Spectator: 91
"Fragrant with floral and spice notes, this muscular red shows black cherry, licorice and mineral flavors. Persistent and firmly structured, with a spice- and herb-filled finish. Best from 2013 through 2024. 90 cases imported." (May 2011)
