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.

Grown a stone's throw from Clos de Vougeot, Les Amoureuses, and Le Musigny, Vougeot wines are obviously strongly akin to these illustrious growths. The fact that only a small quantity is produced gives it a special cachet. Le Vougeot premier cru is a racy wine with points in common with Chambolle Musigny. The well-drained pebbly soil on which it grows makes this a perfumed and elegant wine.

Tasting Profile

Nose
The aromas evoke violets and red and black fruits (raspberries, Morello cherries, mulberries, blackcurrants) and sometimes cocoa. Like the deep red of its colouring, they imbue it with finesse and render it highly seductive. As this wine ages, it suggests woodland undergrowth, with scents of dead leaves and truffles mingled with animal notes.
Palate
The mouth is generally pleasing, affording a true guarantee of its origins. It is solidly structured but its tannins have a certain delicacy and its attack is very pure. Its fleshiness and acidity form a simple and very pleasing harmony. From time to time a hint of licorice is perceptible.
