2015 Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée (1.5L)

SKU #1348505 89-92 points Vinous

 Dark ruby-red. Pungent aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, kirsch, crushed stone and violet convey a hint of chocolatey ripeness. Offers superb density and sweetness for village wine, with enough acidity to give shape and juiciness to the fruit. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins and sappy, palate-staining flavors of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and spices. With its sneaky length, this looks to be an outstanding village wine.(ST)  (1/2017)

90 points John Gilman

 The 2015 Vosne AC from the Mugnerets is cut from a similar stylistic cloth as the Bourgogne, but with more breed and inherent elegance also in evidence. The bouquet is ripe, pure and chocolaty in profile, wafting from the glass in a perfumed blend of black raspberries, black cherries, chocolate, a touch of gamebird and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and voluptuous on the attack, with a sappy core, ripe, seamless tannins and lovely focus and grip on the very long, fruit-driven finish. Despite the generosity of beautiful fruit tones here, this wine is nicely cool and classy in the mouth. (Drink between 2016-2035)  (11/2016)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Vosne Romanee Villages comes from vines located just behind the Mugneret’s winery in Vosne and it was matured 25% new wood. It has a very harmonious bouquet with black cherries, wild strawberry, iodine and faint hints of cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet, juicy tannin counterbalanced by fine acidity, fanning out with quite an opulent and generous, candied finish. I envisage this being delicious in its youth and difficult to resist.(NM)  (12/2016)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

 (from 5 different parcels located in La Columbière, Champs Goudins and Le Pré de la Folie, which are contiguous vineyards located below the village and above the Route Nationale). Initially there is a whiff of reduction though it rapidly blows off to reveal a spicy and markedly floral nose that blends aromas of red currant, raspberry and sandalwood. There is better underlying energy and punch to the relatively powerful and concentrated flavors that also display noticeable warmth on the detailed and mildly austere finale. This is perhaps less elegant than it usually is but it’s even more concentrated. 2023+  (1/2018)

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
Specific Appellation:

Vosne Romanee

- This is the top of the Côte de Nuits. Home to the famous Grand Crus of Romanée, Romanée-Conti, Romanée St. Vivant, Richebourg, La Tâche, Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, and La Grand Rue, this village really makes you realize how much extraordinary wine can come from a tiny place. This is the home of quintessential Burgundy-deep, rich, refined and powerful.
