Wine Critic Reviews for 2009 Mugneret Gibourg Vosne Romanee

(Vosne-Romanée- Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg) The 2009 Vosne-Romanée AC is another absolutely captivating example of the vintage. Since the 1998 vintage I have bought a case of this lovely wine every year, but I do not believe I have yet tasted an example as stellar as this superb 2009. The gorgeous nose jumps from the glass in a vibrant blaze of red and black raspberries, beautiful minerality, raw cocoa, woodsmoke and a pungent topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and rock solid at the core, with beautiful intensity, ripe tannins and really lovely length and grip on the bouncy and utterly suave finish. A beautiful villages. (Drink between 2014-2035)

I bought a case of the Mugneret sisters' 2009 Vosne-Romanée Village en primeur as a student, and my first bottle reveals, at age 11, a wine entering early maturity. Bursting with aromas of cassis, ripe wild berries, violets and cocoa nib, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with lively acids, velvety tannins and a seamless, beautifully sensual profile. Deep and layered, this has integrated its new oak and is beginning to drink with real grace, though it has another two decades of pleasure to give.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer M.Gibourg: As far as reputation goes, Mugneret Gibourg may not be the most recognizable name in the wine world. The many reputable Burgundian wineries are very hard to compete with, but few domaines have seen as much recent success as M. Gibourg. Their wines are so elegant and precise, so intense when it comes to raw fruit flavor, so carefully structured that even the world's most famous wineries struggle to compete. This underdog story is incredibly fun to follow, especially if you are able to afford the wines themselves. Every aspect of Burgundy is clearly translated into Mugneret Gibourg's works, from the climate to the soil and the lively chatter of field workers. If you can't visit the region, then an M. Gibourg is the next best thing.

Region Burgundy: Situated just west of the beautiful river Saone, the hills and valleys of Burgundy stand as they have stood since medieval times, and you can almost hear the cheerful chatter of vineyard workers from miles away. Indeed, France's identity in the world of wine would be incomplete without the inclusion of Burgundy and its many viticultural achievements.

Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace. You could spend years sampling great Burgundian wines, and you would still have a lot to learn, which is what makes the region so compelling for veterans and novice wine lovers alike. No matter what your taste in wines may be, there is a winery in Burgundy that could mesmerize your mind and make your senses scream with joy. And what better way to spend a comfy summer afternoon with your friends and family than with a classy bottle from some of the region's most reputable wineries? From the noble slopes of Cote d'Or to the flatlands near various settlements, let us help you on your journey as we explore Burgundy's most delicious and renowned wines.
Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
