Wine Advocate, April 2018,
The Mugneret-Gibourg 2015 Echezeaux Grand Cru opens in the glass with a complex bouquet of black raspberry, plum, bitter chocolate, bonfire and spicy notes framed by a judicious application of new oak. On the palate, the wine is velvety, full-bodied and ample, with an expansive attack, a deep core of cool fruit and beautifully refined, detailed tannins. This hails from two parcels—one in the lieu-dit of Les Quartiers de Nuits (which the sisters say contributes "black fruit" and a certain textural "rondeur"), the other in Les Rouges du Bas (which lends "minerality and precision"). 95 points.
Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
Family run domaine with sisters Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée Mugneret at the helm. They make beautifully pure and elegant and Pinot Noirs.
One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
