Managed by Vincent Mongeard and his wife Anne, Mongeard-Mugneret is truly one of Burgundy's great domaines. Founded when Vincent's grandparents pooled resources in the 1920s, today they have 33 hectares, stretching from Beaune to Marsannay. The vineyards range from basic Bourgogne to holdings in Grand Crus such as Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot and Grands Echézeaux.
