Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru 2019

Product description

Many Domaines in Burgundy can trace their roots back over a century, but only a few can boast a history of more than 200 years. The roots of Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé may be traced back over 550 years, to the Chambolle vineyards of one Jean Moisson around 1450.

The Domaine is now led by the 20th generation – Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, granddaughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé – and is often regarded as Chambolle Musigny's most important estate.  The Domaine is intrinsically related to the Grand Cru vineyard of Musigny, which is considered by some to be the pinnacle of Pinot Noir.

The de Vogüé villages wine is produced mostly on a 1.8-hectare plot in the Les Porlottes climate, next to the wood on the village's western side, with regular production of just over 400 cases. The soil here is made up of many small rocks covering a layer of limestone. The vines are a little under 30 years old on average. The Domaine additionally owns 0.34 ha of land in the Chambolle 1er Crus of Les Baudes (average 54-year-old vines) and Les Fuées (average 45-year-old vines). Rather than vinify these individually, they combine them into their single villages cuvée, essentially declassifying the resulting 1er Cru wines.

Medium cherry-red; fades to salmon pink at the edge. The nose shows powdery, pure red fruit. The palate gives a very fresh expression; medium length but quite lacy and très elegant. The fine tannins give a little bite on the finish but this is a lovely, pure and elegant, rather than powerful, example of Chambolle.

98 Points - Decanter     From mature vines and a majestic site, the completely destemmed fruit - fermented without punching down - gives a complete wine that is seductive even now and should continue to astonish with age. Layered and complex, the initial impression is of opulent black cherry fruit, liquorice and rose petals. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly fresh and firm, yet also shows an immediately appealing, voluptuous texture. This tightly packed wine will likely benefit from as much age as you can stand to give it.
