2007 Mongeard-Mugneret, Domaine Gevrey Chambertin Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir: 750ml
about this wine:
Gevrey-Chambertin wines are deep in colour with fine expressive aromas.
When young they suggest blackcurrants and other red or black soft fruits, with hints of liquorice heightened by their being partially matured in new oak casks. As the wines age they acquire further aromas suggestive of animal pelts, musk, spicy vanilla and Havana cigars. Rich, fine and full-bodied they have a robust, well-balanced structure.
These wines, with their resounding name, are famed for their bouquet and finesse; they are known to have been Napoleon's favourite wine, which he took with him on his campaigns.
The Mongeard family arrived in Vosne-Romanée in the eighteenth 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 in barrel.
