Reviews 89-91 points Vinous "This has more depth of fruit on the nose than the regular Village Cru, featuring raspberry, cranberry and light mineral notes. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry, more substance than the regular cuvee and firm grip on the structured finish. Fine. (NM)" 89-92 points Burghound "A slightly more elegant and even spicier nose reflects notes of cool and admirably pure aromas of red cherry and raspberry along with Asian-style tea scents. There is a really lovely texture to the restrained and sophisticated middle weight flavors that offer fine intensity on the complex, sneaky long and firmly structured finish. (AM)"

Domaine Gérard Mugneret, located in the heart of Vosne-Romanée just down the street from the renowned Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, is an esteemed winery known for producing some of the most elegant wines in Burgundy. Founded by René Mugneret, the uncle of Dr. Georges Mugneret, the estate shares a familial connection with the neighboring Mugneret-Gibourg estate, which is now managed by Dr. Georges Mugneret's family.
The wines produced at Domaine Gérard Mugneret are characterized as subtle, serene, and gracefully aging, drawing comparisons to esteemed producers like Domaine Lafarge. The 6-hectare estate is now under the guidance of Pascal Mugneret, a descendant of the iconic family, who left his engineering career to return to the family's domaine in 2005. Pascal's leadership has seen the transition to biodynamic practices, though the estate remains uncertified.
Pascal's meticulous approach to viticulture aligns with lunar and planetary cycles, and he is dedicated to limiting tilling and sulfur usage, promoting cover crops, maintaining high hedges, and collaborating with respected peers like Charles Lachaux and Nicolas Faure. His winemaking process incorporates 20 to 100% whole cluster since 2012, utilizing indigenous yeast fermentations without pied de cuve. The wines are gently extracted and aged in oak barrels for 12 to 18 months, with remarkably low sulfur levels well within the range for natural wine.
Pascal's commitment to balance, freshness, and vibrancy has led to significant changes in viticulture and vinification at Domaine Gérard Mugneret. He has separated different cuvées to showcase the uniqueness of each terroir and is devoted to preserving genetic diversity through massal selection and planting a conservatory for future plantings.
The domaine is particularly recognized for its exquisite Vosne-Romanée Village, which embodied the essence of one of Burgundy's finest terroirs. Reflecting on his journey, Pascal acknowledges the delicate balance between control and letting go. Domaine Gérard Mugneret's wines are a testament to Pascal's dedication and passion, solidifying the domaine as one of the brightest stars in the Vosne-Romanee appellation.
