Background

Alexandre and his wife Justine are 9th generation custodians of Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, having taken over the winemaking in recent years. The domaine is located in Vosne-Romanée in the heart of the Côte de Nuits.

The Domaine has vineyards in 28 appellations totalling over 30 hectares, ranging from Villages to Grand Cru. Vincent has a passion for Pinot Noir and predominantly makes red wines. Sustainable viticulture (lutte raisonée) is practiced with a focus on soil health, using manure and compost to improve it. A lot of thought goes into selecting the perfect fine grain oak for maturation.

Vincent personally picks his own oak from Nièvre and the Tronçais forest in Allier. The oak is cured at the domaine for 18 - 24 months and a local cooper assembles the barrels for them.
