2019 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

$749.00

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

94 Points Allen Meadows
This is aromatically restrained while similar to the Chambolle villages in terms of the fruit but with more apparent spice and floral influences. The sleek, intense and big-bodied weight flavors exhibit evident minerality on the focused and gorgeously textured finish where a touch of bitter cherry pit character slowly emerges. This markedly firmer effort and beautifully balanced wine is a really lovely wine that possesses a similar degree of finesse but with plenty of punch to go with it. In a word, terrific.
