Interestingly, this possesses a similar nose to that of the Grande Complication save that it is more reserved. The middle weight and more mineral-inflected flavors are not as dense however though they do flash better power and driving on the youthfully austere, compact and very firm finale. This is very much of an introverted Riche at present and extended patience will be required if you wish to experience this at its peak.

While members of the Mongeard family have been in Vosne-Romanée since 1620, it was the marriage of Eugène Mongeard to Edmée Mugneret in the 1920s that brought together vineyards from both families. Even then, the fruit was sold to producers such as Marquis d'Angerville and Henri Gouges and it was on Henri Gouge's advice that, in 1945, Eugène and Edmée's son Jean began estate-bottling the wine for the first time and releasing them commercially under the name Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret. Today, this large and important domaine is run by their grandson, Vincent Mongeard.
