Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
Attending Winemakers: Marie-Andrée Mugneret & Marie-Christine Mugneret
Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg was the creation of a newly married couple, Jeanne Gibourg and André Mugneret, in 1933. Their only son, Georges Mugneret, pursued a career in ophthalmology, while simultaneously working the family profession by enlarging and enhancing the estate and purchasing some of his own vines whose wines were bottled under the label Domaine Georges Mugneret.
Dr. Mugneret met his future wife Jacqueline in 1958 while serving in Algeria. Upon their return to France they had two daughters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée. In 1988, following a long illness, Georges Mugneret died, and Jacqueline bravely began managing the domaine alongside Marie-Christine, who resigned her position as a chemist to specialize in oenology. Marie-Andrée joined them several years later, after she obtained her diploma in oenology. In 2009, the two domaine names were merged into the current Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg. Today, the domaine is jointly headed by the two sisters, who continue to produce the same elegant and exquisite Burgundies as the previous generations did before them.
