mugneret-gibourg vosne 2004
2004 Mugneret-Gibourg, Vosne-Romanéetry to find this wine...
Quite a deep cherry-red colour. Right from opening this has a deep, forward nose that begs further sniffing; concentrated red and black cherry with just a powdery edge and an undercurrent of spice in a cinnamon/clove type of way. The palate is well-textured, concentrated and (for a village) very concentrated. The acidity is fresh but not racy and there are fine, well-covered tannins. Understated length finishes a complete village wine. Not even a hint of green – Excellent.
Even on day two this has held together perfectly. A great way to start the year.
Rebuy – Yes

As soon as I finish this bottle (tomorrow) I will have to open up the ‘village’ Gevrey for comparison…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    I too enjoyed the Mugneret VR very much. It outclassed the Arnoux VR 04 which we compared side-by-side and drank them (together with the Ch. de Puligny St. Aubin 1er Cru En Remily Rouge 04) over 5 hours. Would you be drinking the NSG VV04 from Mugneret soon?

    Hi Alvin – yes this is excellent wine. I don’t know the NSG VV(?) from Mugneret-Gibourg (or Dr Georges!), but I do have the NSG 1er Chaignots lined up the follow the Gevrey…

    Yes Mugneret-Gibourg produced a NSG VV in 2004 along with the NSG Chaignots 04 which is under the Georges-Mugneret label.
