Description

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 them 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.

Bordering both Romanee Saint Vivant and Richebourg, the 13.08-hectare premier cru Les Suchots produces wines that are, at their best, beautifully seductive and perfumed wines without quite the structure of the two grand crus that share its borders. Mongeard Mugneret has a 0.22-ha plot with vines that are 50 years old and it’s a wine that will reward at least ten years, if not longer, in the cellar.
