Notes from North Berkeley Imports:
"There are few estates that capture the seductive power of Burgundian Pinot Noir as faithfully as does Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg in Vosne.
The Mugneret sisters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée, are some of
the leading winemaking talents in all of Burgundy. Their very small production is highly sought-after (and often in vain) by the world’s connoisseurs, simply because Mugneret Burgundy offers such a subtle yet potent impression of Burgundy’s most hallowed terroirs. We first started working with the Mugnerets decades ago when their father was at the helm; today, it is always a joy to visit these hard-working, ever generous sisters and taste the products of their tireless labors. Mugneret Burgundy is Burgundian to its core, a pleasure to drink and a treasure to cellar.
The heart and soul of Vosne. The Mugneret sisters select older-vine fruit from contiguous parcels in Vosne (‘La Columbière,’ ‘Champs Goudins’ and ‘Le Pré de la Folie’) plus ‘Les Chalendins’ to the northeast and ‘Les Croix Blanches’ to the south, for a Pinot Noir of finesse and pure ruby flavors.."
