The wines of Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuits express themselves with great purity through their freshness and the intensity of red and black fruits: currant, raspberry, blackcurrant. Drunk in its blooming youth, but still not too early, the pinot is very fruity, then evolving towards animale and undergrowth.

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.

The beautiful ruby purple color of the 2020 Hautes-Côtes De Nuits Les Dames Huguettes is followed by lovely aromas of spring flowers, black cherries and forest floor. Medium-full-bodied, balanced and clean on the palate, this terrific 2020 has the perfumed fruit of the vintage paired with remarkable purity, fresh acidity, smooth tannins, and fabulous balance. This will make an exceptional bargain to cellar for up to a decade for Burgundy and Vosne-Romanée lovers.
