There are few estates that capture the seductive power of Burgundian Pinot Noir as faithfully as does Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg in Vosne.

To wit, the Mugneret sisters today are one of the leading talents in all of Burgundy. Their very small production is highly sought-after (and often in vain) by the world’s connoisseurs, simply because Mugneret Burgundy offers such a subtle yet potent impression of Burgundy’s most hallowed terroirs.

The history of the Mugnerets has much to do with fate, a theme not unfamiliar to grape growers or winemakers. The modern founder of the family estate, Dr. Georges Mugneret, was born into a winemaking family yet pursued his passion for wine alongside his profession as an ophthalmologist. In the late 1980s, however, he passed away after a short but serious illness, handing over the estate he had nurtured to his wife, Jacqueline, and two daughters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée, for them to either carry on, or sell.

Madame Mugneret said no sale; Marie-Christine gave up a career as a chemist to learn winemaking; and Marie-Andrée quickly finished her oenological studies. And with a passion and dedication no less than their father’s, they pushed on to establish Mugneret-Gibourg as the world-class domaine it is today.
