Tasting Notes

    Neal Martin, December 2017,
    Score: 92-94

    Returning after parading last year as a Bourgogne Blanc until the vines reached satisfactory maturity, the 2016 Musigny Blanc Grand Cru is comprised of three barrels, none of them new. It has an intriguing bouquet with white flowers, honeysuckle, Cornice pear and orange blossom aromas, plus jasmine with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a resinous texture and you know, if I was served this blind, frankly I would never guess it to be a Chardonnay. It is a sui generis, almost Marsanne-like in flavor profile and texture with touches of spice, ginger and lemongrass toward the finish. This is an absolutely fascinating wine. Welcome back.

Producer

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

This domaine can trace its history back over 500 years. It has been in the hands of the same family which is now in its 20th generation.George's grand-daughters Clare de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette are the family members presently involved.Currently the wine is overseen by Francois Millet as winemaker and Eric Bourgogne as chef de vignes. The vineyards spread to 12.5 hectares. They, amazingly, adapt their techniques depending on the conditions of the particular vintage, and rather disparage those who have a single "best" technique every year. This, hopefully, allows a purer expression of the raw material and vintage.

Region

Le Musigny

Le Musigny is a red Grand Cru vineyard based in Burgundy’s Chambolle Musigny village in the Côte de Nuits. Le Musigny is situated between the scrubland at the top of the slope and the upper section of Clos de Vougeot on well-draining limestone soil. The wines of Le Musigny are some of the best in Burgundy on a par with those of Romanée Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze.
