Fixin wines are delicate in color and have an excellent structure in which tannins usually play a dominant role, making these wines robust rather than subtle. They have a good acid content and are endowed with a solidity and substance which places them among wines that are best laid down for a certain time. When young they possess sauvage aromas suggestive of pelts and musk. These are ample wines which develop their bouquet over time as they mature.  

Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret's Fixin is made from grapes planted on stony soils on argillocalcareous layers. 100 % Pinot Noir with an average age of vines of 40 years. Harvesting is done by hand exclusively and then the grapes are hand-sorted in the winery before being de-stemmed. Aged in barrel, 5 to 10 % new oak.

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.

A dense, brooding red, exhibiting black cherry, blackberry, plum, iron and earth aromas and flavors. There is a beam of acidity, keeping this well-defined, with a solid spine of tannins. Spicy finish. Best from 2024 through 2033. 215 cases made, 110 cases imported.
