2002 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru

$1,450.00

With more than 500 years of history and the lion’s share of one of Burgundy’s most hallowed grand crus, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is a cornerstone of Burgundian legend and a vinous dream for modern connoisseurs.

Certainly the greatest estate in Chambolle-Musigny if not in greater Burgundy, de Vogüé for 20 generations has been steward of the village’s top terroirs. The estate owns some 80 percent of grand cru Le Musigny, and a significant portion of grand cru Bonnes-Mares. Its premier cru Chambolle-Musigny is crafted exclusively from younger-vine fruit in Musigny and its Musigny Blanc is crafted from younger-vine Chardonnay grown also in Musigny.

The style of de Vogüé is the epitome of Chambolle—delicate aromas, refined yet profound flavors, a finish made of silk. These are wines that come into their own not ten years down the line but 30; a cellar without a selection of de Vogüé is a cellar missing the soul of Burgundy.

Description

93 Points Allen Meadows
Classic ruby color. A very expressive nose of pungent lavender, violet and a mix of jammy red and black fruit cut with subtle earth notes. As it should be, this is a big, muscular, robust and powerful wine that is impressively concentrated and hugely long with a mouth coating and chewy finish. This is a very ripe wine and finishes with a touch of warmth. Most impressive and slightly better than I originally envisioned. Note that the firm structure will require plenty of patience.

94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The intense scents of the 2002 Bonnes Mares burst from the glass, exhibiting dark jammy fruits, spices, and blood oranges. Bold, powerful, and crammed with black cherries, allspice, and raspberries, it reveals copious quantities of exquisitely ripened tannin in its finish. This noble, muscular, extravagant wine.
