Richebourg Grand Cru 2010 - Domaine Mongeard Mugneret

This grand Cru prestigious part of the 6 Grands Crus in the village of Vosne Romanée. The other five are : La Romanée, la Romanée-Conti, la Romanée Saint-Vivant, the Task , and finally the High Street. It is the second largest in area, with yet only 8 hectares of vines in the appellation Richebourg Grand Cru (the smallest of the 6 Grands Crus in surface area is the Romanée with less than a hectare, the Romanée Conti itself with 1.77 hectares).

Characteristics of the Richebourg Grand Cru :

A Richebourg can be jewels, draped with velvet or dark red pulling on the night, purple black. The colour is always intense and dense, bright and covered with coppery tints.
On the nose and young, the wine reveals aromas of musk and leather of Russia and nuances of sandalwood. It evolves into a hawthorn, and peach blossom. Two families of aromatic are distinguishable : the shades of lichen, undergrowth and mushrooms on the one hand; the notes of cherries, currants, cooked fruit or candied on the other hand.

In the mouth :
In his youth, he explodes. Intense, violent, he needs several years to become expansive and warm. Elegant and racy, it is capable of a long life and becomes the great years, the image of voluptuousness. Sometimes with more finesse than structure, or, conversely, a fruit solid, a temperament enthusiastic, compact and muscular.

The persistence in the mouth is simply outstanding.

The harvest is here, naturally, full manual, raising 100% new oak barrels.

Like most of the Great Wines of Burgundy, it will be opened after several years of custody.

Wine and Food pairings :

Pieces of game fur or meat roasted, beautiful pieces of red meat.

Serving temperature of wine : 15 to 16°

Domaine Mongeard Mugneret

The vineyard is located mid-slope, facing south-east on clay and limestone.

Wine Characteristics


These red Grands Crus frequently give good results from long laying-down.
As a general rule, they shouldn’t be drunk under about ten years of age but sometimes they will be aged up to 20 or 30 years. Each appellation has its own distinct personality depending on its year of production and on the stage it has reached in its development. These flamboyant red wines fully express the subtlety and complexity of the Burgundian Pinot Noir grape.
Their colour is a dark ruby turning crimson with age. Their wide-ranging bouquet is divided among small red and black fruits, violet, spices and, with time, underbrush. On the palate, this wine is well-defined with a powerful body. It is delicate, sensual, frank and full.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip

In addition to their powerful structure and exceptional longevity, these great wines develop tertiary aromas of truffle, underbrush, leather and fur. It goes without saying that strong-flavoured meats will do them justice: furred or feathered game, braised, in sauce, or simply grilled. Wild-fowl (eg Peking duck) or a nice cut of roast veal will be gently enveloped by the close-packed but elegant tannins of these mighty Pinot Noir wines.
Serving temperatures: 15 to 16°C.
 

Situation

Lying between Flagey-Échezeaux (home of the ÉCHEZEAUX appellation) and Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée occupies a middle position in the Côte de Nuits. The vines grow at altitudes of 250 to 310 metres and face east or, in some cases, slightly south of east. Vosne-Romanée, the central jewel in the necklace of appellations which is the burgundian côte, is not content with holding a mere four aces but boasts a total of six Grands Crus, each one famous the world over. A thousand years ago, it was the Benedictine monks of Saint-Vivant de Vergy and the Cistercians of Cîteaux who first realised the value of these very special plots of land. One of these vineyards takes its name from Prince Conti who lost his heart to it in 1760. Romanée-Conti is one of the wonders of the world and has always been a singly-held entity.
Next door to it, Romanée-Saint-Vivant recalls the medieval monastery of the Hautes Côtes which is currently undergoing restoration and which is linked to it by its own path. La Romanée, La Tâche and La Grande Rue are also singly-held entities, as is Richebourg, whose mere name is enough to fill a glass.
 

Terroirs

Romanée-Conti lies on brown limestone soils 60 cm deep with a major clay component. Romanée-Saint-Vivant has similar but deeper (90 cm) soils. Higher up, La Romanée occupies a markedly sloping site (12%) and the soil texture is less clayey. La Tâche and La Grande Rue share brown limestone soils, rather shallow at the top end with deeper rendzinas lower down. The same is true for the Richebourg, depending on slope and aspect. The underlying rock is hard Premeaux limestone dating from the Jurassic (175 million years BC).
