The Mongeard family arrived in Vosne-Romanée in the 18th century, and records show a Mongeard working as vigneron for Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in 1786. In 1945, Jean Mongeard, whose mother was a Mugneret, found himself making wine at the age of 16. His father had died five years before, and there was no one left to do the job. The entire 1945 crop was purchased by Baron le Roy, Marquis d'Angerville and Henri Gouges. Gouges instructed the young Mongeard to personally bottle the wines, rather than sell in barrel, because of the exceptional quality of the family's wines. 

Robert Parker describes the wines of the domaine: 'The style of winemaking seems to extract rich, supple, concentrated fruit from the grapes...The wines always seem to show well young, but also age nicely for 10-15 years.'

Since 1997, Vincent Mongeard, Jean's son, has been responsible for viticulture and vinification of the domaine's wines. He persuaded his father to return to the traditional method of bottling, without filtration, filtering only with certain vintages. Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret today covers a total area of more than 25 hectares, divided into 22 appellations. Their vineyards are 45-50 years old on average, and are grafted with superior Pinot Noir clones. All of the wines are 100% de-stemmed with the exception of Richebourg, for which they include 1/3 stems for more tannic structure. 

Bourgogne Pinot Noir, also known as Bourgogne Rouge, has a violet ruby red color when young. This wine opens out early and offers a wide range of red berry aromas, sometimes developing animal hints when mature. The structure is supple; owing to the moderate tannin content. Bourgogne Pinot Noir can be drunk young, when it will already reveal elegance and typicity. The estate's Bourgogne vines are planted on Jurassic soils ground with broken stones and limestone grit on a deep clay matrix. 100 % Pinot Noir averaging 28 to 55 years. Harvesting by hand exclusively. Hand-sorted in the winery. Destemmed 100 %. Aged in 2 year barrels.

This supple, silky Bourgogne Rouge has red fruit, purple flower and mineral aromas and flavors. The pedigree of the house, based in Vosne-Romanée, is very obvious. Pair with roasted salmon, chicken, turkey and more. Delicious with cheeses, too.

Pure and taut, stretching wild strawberry, cherry and stone flavors across vibrant acidity and steely tannins. This strikes an equilibrium, with a resonant finish. Best from 2025 through 2032. 100 cases imported.
