2018 is a blockbuster vintage at Mongeard Mugneret that closely parallels the otherworldly 1990 vintage. This is a blockbuster Borgogne rouge from vines between 28-55 years old planted on Jurassic soils with broken stones and limestone grit on a deep clay matrix. The Bourgogne Rouge jumps from the glass with red cherry, red berry, orange zest, minerals, and a touch of spice. The palate has tons of depth, power, and length for a wine at this level and is one of the most serious examples of Bourgogne Rouge we have tried all year. This is a full-bodied Bourgogne rouge that is the ultimate crowd-pleaser, cellar saver, and or cross over wine for those domestic Pinot Noir lovers looking to dip their feet into the Burgundy region without breaking the bank. The 2018 Mongeard Mugneret gets our nod for our best buy Bourgogne Rouge of 2020!
