Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny Grand Cru Cuvee Vieilles Vignes 2012
The 2012 George Comte de Vogue Musigny VV Grand Cru is a stunning example of the remarkable quality of wines from the esteemed Musigny vineyard. This Burgundy boasts a rich and complex bouquet of ripe red fruits, earth, and delicate floral nuances. On the palate, it is beautifully balanced, offering a harmonious blend of power, finesse, and depth. The finish is long and elegant, reflecting the wine's immense aging potential and ability to evolve over time.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) - Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Musigny Vielles Vignes Grand Cru from de Vogüé has slightly brighter and more vivacious fruit than J-F Mugnier, and in fact, the two wines seem to go in two different trajectories in the glass, this blossoming and the other becoming more occluded. De Vogüé's Musigny is unashamedly floral in style, very elegant and yet delineated. There is a noticeable estuary scents, mudflats and seaweed, that begin to permeate the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, wonderful acidity and succinctly integrated new oak that is barely tangible. It is intense but elegant, long and tender in the mouth. It is a fabulous Musigny, one of the best that the domaine has produced in recent years.
