About the Domaine:
Many domaines in Burgundy can trace their roots back over 100 years, but only a handful can claim more than 200 years of history, let alone 550 years. Highly regarded as the greatest estate in Chambolle Musigny, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is now headed by its 20th generation – Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, the granddaughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé. The estate's longstanding employees have also contributed to the brand's outstanding quality vintage after vintage with François Millet as Winemaker since 1986, Jean-Luc Pépin as Sales Manager since 1988 and Eric Bourgogne as Vineyard Manager since 1996.

About this Wine:
The estate’s vines (nearly seven acres) are all located on the Chambolle side of Bonnes-Mares. The terroir here has more red clay (where Morey has more marl and limestone) for a more velvety-textured, rounder wine, with characteristic aromas of violets and wildflowers.

Ratings & Reviews

93-95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru has an intriguing and complex bouquet. It is equidistant between red and black fruit, forsaking the sorbet-like tendencies of other Bonnes-Mares 2014 that I tasted from barrel. Rather, this is more earthbound with scents of potter's wheel and woodland infusing the fruit. The palate is towards the red side of the fruit spectrum like the Amoureuses, very saline in the mouth, actually quite Musigny-like in style with fine structure towards the finish and a long, delicately spiced aftertaste. This should become a cerebral Bonnes-Mares." - Neal Martin (12/2015)

92-94 Points: Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A completely different aromatic profile is present with its much earthier array of notably fresh red berries and discreet sauvage aromas. There is excellent richness to the muscular and full-bodied flavors that also possess fine mid-palate concentration that coats the mouth and helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the seamlessly proportioned finale. This very firmly structured effort is clearly going to require 15 to 20 years to arrive at its peak." (1/2016)

93+ Points - Vinous Media:
"Good dark red Musky, soil-driven aromas of dark cherry, sappy pomegranate, wild herbs and brown spices Densely packed and silky but with excellent definition and energy to its dark berry, menthol, dark chocolate and herb flavors Much broader than the Chambolle 1er Cru but also less evolved Finishes with fine-grained tannins and terrific length." - Stephen Tanzer (3/2017)
