2011 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Bourgogne Blanc

$750.00

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

This wine could be labelled as Musigny Blanc however, due to the majority of the chardonnay vines being replanted the average age of the chardonnay vines dropped below 25 years. The team at Comte Georges de Vogue believe that a Grand Cru can only show its true character when the vines are older than 25 years.

95 Points Greg Sherwood MW
A big beast of a wine – Vogue Musigny Blanc 2011. Honied, exotic leesy apricots, caramel biscuits, lemon curd and spicy, pithy, baked green apples. Intense fruits, fathomless depth, beautiful intense framing acids. An almost overwhelming wine.
