The wines from Mugneret-Gibourg have always enjoyed a fine reputation, first those made by Georges Mugneret himself and then those of his talented daughters Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée following Georges' death in 1988. Dr. Georges was one of France's most respected ophthalmologists, but his passion was his domaine and his successful medical practice allowed him to acquire vineyards of outstanding quality. This village wine of Vosne comes from 70 year old vines and is a step up in elegance and finesse, and is consistently one of the best of the appellation.
IWC: 90 "Bright medium red. Redcurrant, flowers, spices, orange zest and white pepper on the scented nose. Not a fleshy style but juicy and nicely delineated, with the orange note providing inner-palate lift. Still tight but finishes with nice subtle length. The energy of this excellent village wine really wakes up the palate.” (Mar 2011)
