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
Revealing a vivid purple/burgundy color, the Vougeout 1er Cru Les Cras is one of the more powerful, backward wines from Mongeard-Mugneret. Completely destemmed and brought up in 30-40% new French oak, it offers a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, crushed violets, exotic spices, and white pepper. Deep, medium-bodied, incredibly refined and silky, it has high yet integrated acidity, beautiful tension and purity, and a great finish.

This is pure and linear, delivering a beam of cherry, raspberry, stone and spice flavors. Never wavers, staying consistent from start to the lingering finish. Shows terrific balance and harmony.
