Overview of the Wine
The Mongeard family arrived in Vosne-Romanée in the eighteenth century, with records showing a Mongeard working as vigneron for Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in 1786. In 1945, Jean Mongeard, whose mother was a Mugneret, found himself making wine at the age of 16 in the place of his father who had died years earlier. The entire 1945 crop was purchased by Baron le Roy, Marquis d’Angerville, and Henri Gouges. Gouges instructed the young Mongeard to personally bottle the wines, rather than sell in barrel. In 1975, Vincent Mongeard, Jean’s son, began working alongside his father and became responsible for viticulture and vinification of the domaine’s wines. He persuaded his father to return to the traditional method of bottling, without filtration, filtering only with certain vintages. Jean Mongeard retired in 1995, and Vincent assumed complete leadership of the domaine. Today, Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret covers a total area of more than 75 acres, split among 35 appellations. The varied range of climats in which the Mongeards own vineyards results, naturally, in wines of great diversity.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This wine is harmonious, round, generous, fleshy, ample, mellow, racy, and elegant; in color a deep, rich ruby red. The bouquet is of quite exceptional aromatic intensity, in which the concentrated perfumes of rich red and black fruits (cherries, mulberries, black currants), vanilla and spices, woodland undergrowth, violets, and, with age, animal pelts all mingle and combine. In the mouth, this ample, meaty, muscular wine achieves perfect balance between fine tannins, mellowness, and a discreet acidity; the complex aromas linger very long in the mouth.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From two parcels—one in Grand Maupertui and another in Les Chioures (next to Méo Camuzet's)—the 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru opens in the glass with notes of cherries, raspberries and spices, complemented by hints of licorice, rose petals and rich soil tones. Full-bodied, layered and velvety, with fine depth at the core, lively acids and fine-grained tannins, it's a rather suave, elegant rendition of Mongeard-Mugneret's Clos Vougeot.

94 Points - Wine Spectator
A rich, spicy version, this red boasts black cherry, blackberry, loam, vanilla and smoke flavors. Well-defined, with assertive tannins that frame the lingering finish. Just a bit chunky in the end. Best from 2026.
