Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg

Côte de Nuits

The family settled in Vosne-Romanée in 1930 and now the Domaine is managed by the third generations, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée who share the same passion for vine and wine.

Mugneret is a well-known name among winemakers in the Côte de Nuits, particularly in Vosne-Romanée, where it has existed for many generations. It derives from “meunier” of which “mugnier” is a regional form.

The name Gibourg originates from the plain of the river Saône, among grain farmers. The family settled in Vosne-Romanée in 1930 and now the Domain is managed by the third generation, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée who share the same passion for vine and wine.

Jeanne Gibourg (1906-1997) married André Mugneret (1905-1986) in 1928 and together they created Domaine MUGNERET-GIBOURG in 1933. They produced Bourgogne Rouge, Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Echezeaux Grand Cru.

Georges Mugneret, their only son (1929-1988), an opthamologist in Dijon, quickly decided to pursue the family profession in parallel with his own career in medicine, enlarging and enhancing the family estate with successive purchases of plots: Clos Vougeot Grand Cru in 1953, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru in 1971, Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru in 1977, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru « Les Vignes Rondes » in 1982 and Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Les Feusselottes” in 1985. Thus was created the Domaine Georges Mugneret.

Georges Mugneret met his future wife Jacqueline, a school teacher, in 1958, while serving in Algeria. Upon their return to France they got married. They had two daughters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée. Georges Mugneret died in 1988. Marie-Christine resigned her position as a chemist to specialize in oenology. She took over the activity with her mother. Marie-Andrée joined them several years later, after she obtained her diploma in oenology from the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon.

In 2009 Domaines Mugneret-Gibourg and Georges Mugneret combined to give birth to Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg.  The same year Jacqueline retired, and today the estate is headed by the two sisters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée.

The family pattern repeats itself… Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée each have two daughters!
The domain might be passed down from mothers to daughters…

Marie-Christine, Marie-Andrée and their team make their wine in a gentle and classical style, thus preserving all the delicacy, fruit, and freshness of the grape.

This adequacy “Pinot Noir – Terroir” makes for the richness and diversity of the Burgundy vineyards.
