With a rich history of wine making many of the estates of France, and Burgundy, take pride in tracing their history back 100 or 200 years. Famed for rich Pinot Noirs, Burgundy has become a favorite of collectors and amateur enthusiasts alike. Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue, with over 550 years of history, is a unique and historic contribution. A veritable legend, this Burgundy estate can trace its history to 1450 and the estate of Jean Moisson. The estate has been held by the same family for 20 generations and is currently run by Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, granddaughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogue. The largest landowner in the Musigny Grand Cru, with 7 out of 10 hectares, this Burgundy gem is highly celebrated. It was the late Comte Georges de Vogue, a “lively, old-fashioned aristocrat,” who is credited not only with changing the estate’s name but with reestablishing and redefining the wine’s reputation. With an emphasis on minimal intervention, the estate does not treat its vines merely for the sake of prevention. Rather, using ploughs drawn by horses and organic methods it cares for its vines and the terroir. With a blend of traditional and modern techniques, that change from year to year with the demands of the vintage, this estate releases powerful, expressive and dense wines that age beautifully. With silky tannins, lingering elegance and delicate ethereal notes, the wines released under the iconic rooster emblem are some of the best of Burgundy.
With vines averaging 40 years, this beautiful Pinot Noir has become the hallmark of this celebrated Burgundy estate. With limited new oak exposure, this structured and expressive wine is pure and expresses beautiful minerality. With silky tannins that give way to a bouquet of delicate florals and strong red fruits. The palate is defined by minerality and sharp notes of licorice and white pepper. Neal Martin rates it 92 Points in The Wine Advocate and recommends cellaring to fully enjoy the purity.
