Burgundy - ECHÉZEAUX, Grand Cru, Mongeard Mugneret

2005 CLOS DE VOUGEOT, Grand Cru, Mongeard Mugneret. Burgundy

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Clos de Vougeot is the largest (50 hectare) Grand Cru. To quote Jancis Robinson:
"The thrill of Clos de Vougeot is historical. Vines were first planted there in the 12th century by the austere monastic order based in nearby Citeaux, which they found too marshy for successful viticulture. The Cistercians accumulated land around their original holdings on the slope just south of the village of Vougeot so successfully that by 1336 the vineyard was essentially as it is today, Burgundy's largest walled vineyard, or clos, with a press house and cellar attached.
Today, by contrast, Clos de Vougeot is most famous for the number of owners with a plot inside its historic walls - more than 80, many of whom sell their grapes to merchants or other growers - and for being the headquarters of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, France's most famous vinous brotherhood."
Producer: A domaine formed when a Mongeard and a Mugneret married in the 1920s. Vincent Mongeard now has 30 hectares, spread across many villages
Vintage: 2005 Great year - this is still relatively youthful and will peak around 2020
