Lot #284. Mongeard Mugneret Grands Echézeaux 2005

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 96+ JG.
"The 2005 Grands Echézeaux from Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret is going to be a great, great wine, but it is still a puppy and needs at least another decade in the cellar. The bouquet is young, but stunning, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of red plums, red and black cherries, a hint of blood orange, a gorgeously complex base of soil, cocoa powder, gamebirds, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite primary , with great depth of sappy fruit at the core, seamless, ripe tannins, outstanding soil signature and a very, very long, tangy and laser-like finish. This is an utterly brilliant bottle in the making." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Jan/Feb 2016, Issue #61
Provenance: The Civray Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $850
