Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret is one of larger producers in Vosne-Romanée, producing a large range of wines from Bourgogne-Rouge to Richebourg.
The top wine of the estate is the Richebourg, and while it’s a rather costly bottle, the quality has been rather mixed from time to time. I do however feel a certain step forward in quality in recent years.
But lets go to the mighty Richebourg vineyard.
Richebourg one vineyard two sections
Richebourg includes two climats – Les Richebourg 5.05 ha (the original part) and Les Verroilles ou Richebourg 2.98 ha – in total 8.03 ha. – see maps below.
The current ownership of Richebourg
Richebourg is divided between 11 owners, with Domaine de la Romanee-Conti as the main and principal owner of both Les Richebourg and Les Verroilles.
- Domaine de la Romanee Conti – 3.51 ha

The Mongeard-Mugneret plot in Les Richebourg
As it can be seen on the map above the Mongeard-Mugneret plot is located in the Les Richebourg section just below Les Petits Monts. Mongeard-Mugneret acquired the plot in 1984 from Charles Vienot – and the first vintage was presumably 1984.
