Dr. Georges Mugneret was a highly regarded ophthalmologist, but he came from a winemaking family, and his true passion was wine. His medical practice, however, came in handy, as he could afford to be very particular with the vineyard sites he purchased, resulting in top quality ranging from Bourgogne to Grand Cru. Sadly, Dr. Georges passed suddenly, leaving his wife and two daughters to take over the family estate.
Continuing what their father started, Marie-Christine runs the winemaking and cellar work, while her sister Marie-Andree manages the vineyards and business. Given the high quality and reputation, one might think there is a large team behind the scenes, but it’s just the sisters and their two assistants. The result in the glass is an honest representation of the term Burgundian: perfumed aromas, silky smooth tannins, rich fruit, and refined elegance. This team of four crafts a minuscule amount of wine but everything across the range is worth splurging for. Insider tip: if you have the opportunity to acquire some, jump on it!
