Mongeard Mugneret Richebourg 2005 1.5L

"A distinctly floral nose that is strikingly complex as well as spicy, pure and elegant merges into powerful and punchy flavors where the stem tannins are evident but they're already beginning to integrate on the hugely long finish. This is a big yet refined effort that will need every bit of at least a decade to really be at its best. Readers should note that the mouth feel here is distinctly different from all of the prior wines due to the whole cluster vinification." AM Jan 2007
Mongeard Mugneret, Richebourg Grand Cru
"from vines adjacent to those of Domaine de la Romanee Conti in Richebourg proper; whole cluster vinification. Vincent Mongeard told me in no uncertain terms that "2005 is the best vintage that I have ever vinified and I have been doing this for a while now and seen my share of impressive vintages, including 1985, 1990, 1993, 1999 and 2002. In my view, it's no context, 2005 is superior to all of them. What sets the vintage apart in my view is not only the great raw material but the perfect balance that will enable these wines to age effortlessly."
