1990 Domaine Comte de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes Burgundy - 96 Pts!

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is one of the most famous producers in Burgundy, with a lineage dating back almost half a millennium in the Côte d'Or. The family is part of the history of the village of Chambolle-Musigny, where it produces elegant wines made from Pinot Noir.

The self-proclaimed Domaine de Musigny, de Vogüé has around 70 percent of its land in the Le Musigny Grand Cru vineyard and 6.5 acres (2.7 hectares) of Bonnes-Mares. Vines are also held in the famous Les Amoureuses Premier Cru vineyard, as well as Les Baudes and Les Fuées, although these are often used to make the village-level wine.

Musigny's steep slopes and stony, friable soils, and winemaker Francois Millet's minimally invasive techniques, combine to produce a heavily fragranced wine with notes of violets, raspberries and blackberries. The wine, which is one of the most expensive in Chambolle-Musigny, is highly collectable and has the ability to age for decades. The Bonnes-Mares wine, on the other hand, tends to be more robust, with more direct fruit and stronger tannins.

Rating 96 RP - This wine demands another 6-7 years of cellaring. Oddly about three years ago it was giving signs of maturing quickly but it has now completely shut down. The Bordeaux-like saturated dense ruby/purple color is followed by a tight-fisted nose and flavors of black fruits underbrush minerals smoke and new oak. Although extremely concentrated the wine is broodingly backward and not fun to drink ... yet. This loaded effort should prove to be one of the longest-lived red Burgundies made in the last twenty years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025. RP
