2020 Bourgogne Rouge, Georges Mugneret-Gibourg

2020 Bourgogne Rouge, Georges Mugneret-Gibourg

This comes from just one parcel in Vosne-Romanée, planted in 1955. The wines are yielding such low volumes that the domaine is in the process of replanting, uprooting one quarter of the parcel at a time. The yield in 2020, like 2019, was just 20 hl/ha, and the result is a staggeringly concentrated Bourgogne Rouge. It has a sweet density and deep, structured fruit, with profound persistence for a Bourgogne. It will easily age for a decade, which is not something you can say of every Bourgogne.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Bourgogne Rouge has around 10% new oak. Bright blackberry and raspberry scents on the nose here, well-defined with a skip in its step already. The palate is smooth on the entry with such fine tannins that they could belong to a Premier Cru. Very precise on the finish. Lovely.
