2005 Domaine Comte de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes Burgundy - 99 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.

Burghound

Burghound 99 BH - Prepare to be transported. A positively brilliant nose of violet and rose petal shines against a background of intensely spiced extravagant red and black pinot fruit nuanced by hints of earth and stone and this minerality continues onto the surprisingly supple flavors that convey a remarkable sense of energy and power on the almost unbelievably intense, focused and structured finish that seems to go on and on without end. And the '05 VV has what all truly great burgundies have which is that extra dimension of power without weight as this carries terrific punch and power yet delivers that explosiveness with impeccable class and grace. While I am duly mindful of the many legendary wines this domaine has produced (see the database for all vintages reviewed dating to 1919), the 2005 could very well join the list of the all time greats, there is really that much potential here. Whether it will ultimately transcend the heights achieved by the 1919 or the 1949 (among many others) remains an open question, I have zero doubt that 2005 will be a genuinely great vintage for this wine. Brilliance personified and absolutely a 'wow' wine, in fact, this merits a double 'wow'. BH
