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 Echezeaux is made from the climats of Echézeaux du Dessus and Les Treux and aged in 75% new oak.

Mongeard Mugneret Vosne-Romanée is made from soils consisting of a shallow layer of fertile alluvial soils on limestone. 100 % Pinot Noir vines averaging 50 years.  Harvesting by hand exclusively. Hand-sorted in the winery. De-stemmed, aged in 30-40% new oak barrels. Vosne Romanée premier cru Les Suchots wines are remarkable. They are close in style to Romanée-Saint-Vivant wines, robust, perfumed and very elegant. Their beautiful color intensity, of a deep ruby or garnet, reminds one of a Petit-Musigny. Their complex aromas are characterized by scents of spices, ripe fruits, vanilla, caramel and licorice. In the mouth, the fine delicate tannins make these wines linger long on the palate and confer a velvety mellowness, making this a wine of great distinction and elegance.
