Great 2015 Mongeard Mugneret Burgs
2015 Mongeard-Mugneret Vosne Romanee....$57.99
Tasting note: Reduction and wood toast dominate the nose at present. By contrast there is excellent richness to the full-bodied and suave medium-bodied flavors that tighten up quickly on the balanced, complex and impressively persistent finish. This appears to be the best wine in 2015 range among the Mongeard villages cuvées.
Rated 89-91/100 Burghound
2015 Mongeard-Mugneret Vougeot 1er Cru Las Cras...$85.99
Tasting note: Here too the wood is moderate but not dominant as it allows the earthy plum and floral-scented nose to be appreciated. There is a beguiling texture to the saline and detailed medium weight flavors that offer good length on the balanced finish but not quite the same overall complexity. Even so this is certainly attractive.
Rated 89-92/100 Burghound
