We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Vincent Mongeard's Fixin is made from a 3 acre vineyard planted to 100% Pinot Noir, with an average vine age of 40 years. The wines of this village tend to be full of intense red fruits and hints of musk with bright acidity and good tannin structure. 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.

Burghound reports: 'Vincent Mongeard succinctly describes 2012 as a "vintage where the underlying terroir really shines. It's very interesting that over the last few years we have had less than ideal growing seasons yet the wines have turned out to be better than merely acceptable. I like my 2012s and I hope my clients do too. I just wish that I had more of them." I would call the Mongeard 2012s as very much performing in-line with the overall quality of the vintage.'
