VARIETALS : Pinot Noir

The Mongeard family arrived in Vosne-Romanée in the eighteenth century, with records showing 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. 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 (Stay tuned for Thursday's offer.)

In 1975, Vincent Mongeard, Jean’s son, began working alongside his father and became 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. Jean Mongeard retired in 1995, and Vincent assumed complete leadership of the Domaine. Respectful of the tradition, Vincent Mongeard practices the vinification at the Domaine with the greatest care.

The 2019 Vintage while small provided a perfect state of health, excellent phenolic maturity and good acidity. “The magic of another magnificent “9” vintage…”

2019 Bourgogne .Rouge has an intense color, varying in intensity according to the vintage. It often has a violet tinge when young. This wine opens out early and offers a wide range of red berry aromas, sometimes developing animal hints when mature. The structure is supple, owing to the moderate tannin content. Bourgogne Pinot Noir can be drunk young when it will already reveal elegance.
