2012 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru


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.

Deep ruby. This is also quite floral with excellent ripeness but also fine freshness to the plum, black cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas. The supple but tautly muscular medium weight plus flavors possess a suave mouth feel thanks to the abundant dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the very firm tannic spine on the highly persistent and imposingly powerful finish. Here too plenty of patience will be required.

94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2012 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a compelling peppermint and star anis-tinged bouquet that comes racing out of the blocks and begs you to love it. And you will. I must confess that when Frédéric asked my opinion I replied that I thought it was the Amoureuses! The palate is very well balanced with pure black fruit interlaced with mint and spices, a dash of black pepper and a gentle grip toward the finish. This is an exuberant Bonnes-Mares, which is exactly how it should be.
