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

94+ Points – Vinous Media:
“Bright, dark red-ruby. Knockout nose combines black fruits, minerals, dark chocolate, clove and menthol. Dense, sappy and intense, boasting outstanding energy and lift to its almost painful flavors of blackberry and black cherry. There's a sweetness here but the wine is very closed today, finishing with a powerful tannic spine and superb vinosity ("in a somber style, almost a bit frightening," says winemaker Millet).” - Stephen Tanzer (3/2016)

94 Points – Allan Meadows BurgHound:
“Deep ruby color. This is more deeply pitched still and even more reserved though aggressive swirling liberates a wonderfully complex array of plum and black raspberry liqueur-like aromas where added breadth is present in the form of spice, earth, pepper, dried flowers and a hint of underbrush. The dense, powerful and broad-shouldered flavors brim with dry extract that imparts a velvety mouth feel to the vibrant finale as well as pushes the very firm core of tannins to the background. This is a big but beautifully well-balanced wine that should amply reward up to 20 years of cellaring." (Drink starting 2028)
