Le Musigny, Grand Cru, 2007

  Domaine de la Vougeraie

Le Musigny, Grand Cru

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Musigny

Le Musigny rates alongside the very best Grands Crus Pinot Noir vineyards in Burgundy. There are 10.7ha split between Musigny, Petits Musigny, and La Combe d'Orveau. The vineyard area lies between the bottom of the wood at the top of the hill and stretches down top the upper part of Clos Vougeot, the slope is steep and the soil is a well-drained limestone/chalk /clay composition. A classic Musigny displays a paradoxical mix of both elegance and raw power, it is commonly described as "An iron fist in a velvet glove." Often very surly and closed in its youth Musigny is nonetheless one of the most beguiling and ageworthy Burgundies money can buy. A massive 7 ha of the vineyard is owned by one of the arch exponents Domaine Comte de Vogüé, other fine examples are made by Leroy, Mugnier, Drouhin and Roumier
