The Winery

Gérard Mugneret is the nephew of the late Dr. Georges Mugneret, and in addition to running his own domaine in Vosne-Romanée, he has overseen some of the Mugneret sisters vineyards since Dr. Georges passed away suddenly back in 1988. He is a talented and dedicated vigneron, with a bevy of fine holdings above and beyond the couple of parcels he looks after for his cousins, ranging all the way from Gevrey-Chambertin to Savigny-les-Beaune. The entire estate is comprised of eight and a half hectares of vineyards, with the vast majority owned outright by Gérard Mugneret, rather than farmed on a sharecropping basis. Monsieur Mugneret has a very strong and loyal following of private clients in Europe, who quickly gobble up the lion’s share of his production every year soon after the vintage is bottled, making the wines virtually unavailable on the export markets or on wine lists in France. After several years we have finally been able to persuade Monsieur Mugneret to allocate us a small allotment of wines to make available in the United States.

The range of wines at Domaine Gérard Mugneret begins with a nearly perfect Bourgogne rouge, elegant, balance, with lovely bright cherry, spice and a hint of earth. But the fireworks really get started with excellent village wines, in particular the villages Vosne-Romanée. Like all of Monsieur Mugneret’s wines, the grapes are completely destemmed and given a couple of days pre-fermentation maceration (à la Henri Jayer and his cousins, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée Mugneret of Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg) to set the colors and release more aromatic complexity prior to the start of fermentation. The village wines see a modicum of new oak (anywhere from ten to fifteen percent, depending on the style of the vintage), and bottled fifteen to eighteen months after the vintage. All of the wines share a wonderful purity and elegance, while both deliver admirable stuffing for their levels.

Very few people know that

Pascal "took over" in 2004 and did his first vintage together with his father Gerard. The philosophy of them is, to say it simple: work in the vineyard and let the wine do his way in the cellar.
