1996 Mongeard-Mugneret Bourgogne

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Saturday, January 26, 2013 - Super Tasting 2 of 6; Maciej Does Burgundy (Bosk, Toronto, Canada): Uncorked approximately 30 minutes before service, served blind. Garnet in the glass, with a heavy brick, moderate sediment; noticeably aged. On the nose, this was quite advanced, but not at all oxidative, showing nice dried cherry, dried pomegranate, earth, decaying leaves, earth, iodine, spent coffee grinds, dried herbs and spice. On the palate, very svelte, light, fully resolved, show just a touch of mild tannin on the moderate length finish. This seemed to be the most mature wine of the evening. In a nice spot, but definitely time to drink up.
