Notes
The 2009 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is one of the most successful wines of François Millet's reign. This has light bricking on the rim. The bouquet bursts forth with red berry fruit, shoe leather and menthol, crushed flowers and sous-bois. Maybe it would benefit from a little more delineation? The palate is beautifully balanced with fine-boned tannins, an unerring symmetry and a silky-smooth texture. Hints of spice appear towards the tender and long finish. Superb. Tasted blind at a 2009 horizontal at Club 1243.

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

One of Burgundy’s oldest and greatest estates, this Domaine has been owned by the same family since 1450. Their 30 hectares of vines that surround the village of Chambolle-Musigny include a staggering 7.25 hectares of the hallowed Musigny vineyard, which is 80% of its entire surface. Since the mid-late eighties François Millet and Jean-Luc Pépin have been guiding this Domaine back to the top and it is now once again a mecca for every Burgundy lover. They produce wines with an obsessive attention to detail, with a view to producing incredibly fine wines that respect terroir and the whims of mother nature
