One of Burgundy's best village wines
2018 Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée

Posted by Ian McFadden

Mugneret-Gibourg's Vosne-Romanée is one of Burgundy's best village wines.

It's easy to fall for Mugneret-Gibourg's Vosne. Few wines combine a seductive texture with an ultra-fine and elegant precision.

For me, there's no better example of a village-level Vosne, and it's one of the greatest examples of village to be found anywhere in Burgundy.

The 2018 is a concentrated example of their Vosne, boasting more spice and polished swagger than the norm. There is a really lovely elegance to the wine. Layers of spice, floral notes and earthy undertones mingle. The beautifully suave texture of Mugneret-Gibourg is definitely on display. The density and balance make me confident that this is going to age really well.

With 5 to 8 years of age, it becomes a heart-breaking tapestry of suave, velvety dark fruits, earth, and exotic spices. The quantities are so limited that I might be getting myself into trouble saying this, but it's definitely worth it to grab a few bottles to track over the next decade and beyond.

Burghound: "This isn't quite as ripe as the more elegant nose displays a mix of red and blue pinot fruit, spice and subtle floral wisps. The sleeker and finer middle weight flavors are not particularly dense but they possess fine depth and persistence on the moderately firm finish."
