Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg, Vosne-Romanée
2016 Burgundy En Primeur
A carefully thought-through approach, with many tiny attentions to detail, account for the exquisite results here. Gentle, non-interventionist methods are key at this Domaine. Only native yeasts are used, and wine movement is achieved by the use of compressed nitrogen or gravity, instead of mechanical pumping, whenever possible. Neither fining nor filtration are practised, which may account for the bounce, texture, raciness and splendid length of the wines.
Marie-Christine Mugneret talks about the vintage: “It is more complex than the 2015, which was all about seduction. The 2016 is more classically Burgundy.” We are fortunate to have access here to all the estate’s greatest wines, including the rare Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes, which comes solely to us, in the UK market. “London is magic,” says her sister Marie-Andrée Mugneret, and the family is happy to know that we aim to deliver their bottles directly into the homes of UK-based amateurs who will open and share them.
Prices for these wines will be available in mid/late January 2018 – with volumes down across this Domaine, please let us know where your interests lie as soon as you can, so we may let you know availabilities and details, as soon as we have them.
