This wine comes from a parcel of red soils bought by Georges Mugneret in 1985. Wines from Chambolle-Musigny are known for their ‘feminine’ character, which is why the finesse of its tannins and aromas need a delicate, simple food pairing. Stunning Pinot that is still getting better and better.
Notes on the producer
The family settled in Vosne-Romanée in 1930 and now the Domain is managed by the third generation, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée who share the same passion for vine and wine. Mugneret is a well-known name among winemakers in the Côte de Nuits, particularly in Vosne-Romanée, where it has existed for many generations. It derives from "meunier" of which "mugnier" is a regional form.
Georges Mugneret, their only son (1929-1988), an opthamologist in Dijon, quickly decided to pursue the family profession in parallel with his own career in medicine, enlarging and enhancing the family estate with successive purchases of plots: Clos Vougeot Grand Cru in 1953, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru in 1971, Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru in 1977, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru « Les Vignes Rondes » in 1982 and Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Feusselottes" in 1985. Thus was created the Domaine Georges Mugneret.
Georges Mugneret met his future wife Jacqueline, a school teacher, in 1958, while serving in Algeria. Upon their return to France they got married. They had two daughters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée. Georges Mugneret died in 1988. Marie-Christine resigned her position as a chemist to specialize in oenology. She took over the activity with her mother. Marie-Andrée joined them several years later, after she obtained her diploma in oenology from the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon.
