Gerard Mugneret Nuits St Georges La Richemoine 1er Cru 2018

Gerard Mugneret Nuits St Georges La Richemoine 1er Cru 2018

100% Pinot Noir. Domaine Gérard Mugneret comprises six hectares of some of the most distinguished vineyards in the Cote de Nuits which are all farmed biodynamically. The family home and cellars lie just downhill from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Winemaker Pascal Mugneret descends from one of Burgundy’s iconic families: Pascal’s grandfather, René, was the uncle of Dr. Georges Mugneret, whose widow and daughters run Mugneret-Gibourg. Pascal grew up in the cellar run by his father, Gerard, but studied physics and pursued a career as an engineer before agreeing to take the reins in 2005. In recent years, Pascal has become one of the hot names to drop in Burgundy circles, for no other reason that he fashions superb expressions of Pinot Noir. Mugneret’s wines remain reasonably priced compared to fellow Vosne winemakers and given their quality, this will not last much longer. Hoard them now!

Tasting Notes
"The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges La Richemone 1er Cru has an expressive, well-defined bouquet of black cherries and pomegranate plus touches of lavender and light violet aromas. There is 100% whole bunch here, although it is difficult to discern relative to other growers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, delivering a fine bead of acidity and cohering nicely toward the finish, which feels very structured and perhaps tighter and more taciturn than the aromatics would suggest. Give it a few years in bottle, because it requires a little patience." - Neal Martin
