The 2016 vintage is a paradox … some were almost untouched by the April frost whereas others lost a large part of the harvest – with vineyards and plots just meters away.
Mugneret-Gibourg was one of the estates that really suffered during the April harvest – and while it’s equally sad for all estates that lost grapes – the quality of the 2016s at Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg does make the frost damage feel even worse … such gorgeous wines.
