About this Item

Vosne-Romanee 1 Cru Les Orveaux, 2010
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret is a Burgundy estate with a long history of making fine Pinot Noir wines in Vosne-Romanée. The Mongeard family dates its origins in the commune back to 1620. In the 1920s, the marriage of Eugène Mongeard to Edmée Mugneret brought together vineyards from both families, increasing the size of the domaine. In 1945, their son Jean began estate-bottling the wine for the first time and releasing it commercially under the name Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret. Jean had taken over the estate and at 16 was selling its grapes to esteemed producers such Marquis d'Angerville and Henri Gouges. It was on Gouges' advice that Jean transitioned to bottling the wine himself. 

Critics Ratings

'The wines from Mongeard-Mugneret are known for their elegance and intensity. Superb nose has spicy contours, blue fruit, and a touch of earthiness to complement the subtly overlain new oak. Silky on entry but with good tannin support. Completely open and delicious over 2 days (extra point added for that). Lovely, long finish. Very good.' - Cellar Tracker 93/100.       

'Explosive nose of red berry fruit, violets, iris, anise, and baking spice. Palate is rich and expansive with lots of extract, but still nicely balanced. Great concentration and depth. The finish is fantastic. This is going to be absolutely superb as it develops. It is delicious, but quite primary now; I think it will be better in 5-10 years.' - CellarTracker 2 - (2015), 94/100
