Mongeard-Mugneret – A very Fine Burgundy family

by | Mar 8, 2017 | Fine Wine Tastings and Dinners | 0 comments

Bacco was packed out for our March masterclass as we focussed on the superb red wines of Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret.

Situated in the hallowed village of Vosne-Romanée just to the north of Nuits St Georges, the estate dates back to the 1920’s when the two families merged their vineyards but the Mongeard dynasty traces back to 1620.

With such a great turnout we were able to maximise the spend on wine as we tasted through a very serious selection.

Starting off with the Hautes Cotes de Nuits 2014 – this was a good insight into well made Burgundy with elegance and depth and a straightforward direct fruit.

The estate owns 30 hectares spread over 28 different Appellations and we now moved south to Savigny-Les-Beaune – a village with an ever improving reputation.

With the Village 2011 being contrasted with the Premier Cru 2013 Les Narbantons they were fascinating to taste with a superb chicken liver terrine.

The 2011 was perfectly mature and better just for drinking on its own, whereas the 2013 1er Cru was vibrantly full of fruit with better structure to deal with the richness of the dish.

Bacco then produced an utterly sublime beef bourguignon that was perfect with the Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Orveaux 2012 and the Echezeaux Grand Cru 2013.

We were now entering seriously expensive territory at £80.00 & £110.00 respectively.

A spot of cheese followed with one of the estate’s flagship wines – Clos de Vougeot 2013 Grand Cru. Utterly fabulous at £149.00 a bottle with many illustrious years left ahead.

“Throughout the 17 years I have attended Tim’s wine tasting events, he has continued to deliver his extensive knowledge of wine and wine-making with great charm, and lots of humour, making the evenings not only informative, but also great fun. In the course of an average year, the tastings cover a kaleidoscope of different wine themes – interesting and entertaining for all, novices and experts alike. And the wines taste pretty good too!”

“We have been going to Teddington Wine Society events for a number of years. Tim runs the evenings with bonhomie and humour and wears his considerable knowledge lightly. The evenings are great fun, the wines are always a little bit different and help to expand knowledge and tasting horizons.”

“I have attended the Richmond Wine society for over ten years and always enjoyed Tim’s self-effacing style and gentle humour. His knowledge is globally eclectic and presented in a clear, interesting and always stimulating way. Every guest I have taken there has enjoyed the evening immensely. Tim also offers a wide range of wines to buy and my red cellar has provided great pleasure to my own dinner guests.”

“I’ve been enjoying Tim’s tastings for over 20 years – he is a great teacher, raconteur and wine expert. He is seriously passionate about his wine, but there is nothing serious about his tastings, which are always informal and relaxed. A lovely way to spend an evening and enjoy some fantastic wines.”
