The Mongeard family arrived in Vosne Romanée in the 18th century, and records show
a Mongeard working as vigneron for Domaine de la Romanée Conti in 1786. Baron
le Roy, Marquis d’Angerville and Henri Gouges purchased the entire 1945 crop and that was when Gouges encouraged the young Vincent Mongeard to personally
bottle the wines, rather than sell in barrel. His son Jean took the helm from 1976 to 1995, expanding the domaine’s holdings to 33 hectares in 35 appellations while also returning to more traditional winemaking processes such as bottling without filtration.
Les Narbantons is a fantastic early consumption wine and one that we tout every
vintage. From 55-year old vines and aged in 30% new oak this selection will show finesse but be full of character and noticeable tannins. Our suggestion is to open this bottle an hour before the meal hits the table.
