This bright, dark ruby-colored wine is exceptional. Its enticing nose reveals extraordinarily refined aromas of a myriad of flowers soaked in cherries, blueberries and traces of sweet mocha. This oily-textured, full-bodied, perfectly harmonious, and compellingly delineated wine could not be any more elegant. It possesses awesome depth, concentration, and purity in its violet and cherry cream pie-flavored personality. Moreover, its formidably long finish displays a strong yet satiny backbone. I predict it will evolve magnificently. Anticipated maturity
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Harmony defined. Full-bodied and without a glitch, here's a red Burgundy so supple it caresses the palate, all the while delivering a mineral, terroir-driven character that's simply spectacular. Best from 2005 through 2015. 915 cases made. ?PM

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüe

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüe

Comtes de Vogüé is one of the most celebrated producers in the Côte d'Or. Located in Chambolle-Musigny, it dates back to 1450 when Jean Moisson constructed the original building. The property has remained in the original family since - even through the French Revolution when they went into exile in England. In 1766, a female descendant married Cerice-Melchior de Vogüé. It is from this line that the domaine took its name. Its more modern history started in 1925 when the Comte Georges de Vogüé took over and designed the label. Today, the domaine is in the hands of his granddaughters and run by three individuals - Eric Bourgogne, vineyard manager; François Millet, head of winemaking; and Jean-Luc Pépin, sales and marketing. The domaine owns an incredible amount of Musigny - 7.2 hectares (over 6.55 hectares planted to red and another 0.65 hectares to white) out of a total surface of 10.85 hectares, making them the largest landowners. Their Bonnes Mares is also one of the most sought after in the region. ...
Burgundy

Burgundy

There is no region in the world that is viewed as the “Mecca” of wine like Burgundy is. Unlike Bordeaux or the Rhône which is a blend of varieties, both red and white Burgundies are almost always pure varietal wines – Pinot Noir for the reds and Chardonnay and occasionally Aligoté for the whites. The region lies due southwest of Champagne and is divided into several sub-regions. Chablis is the furthest north and produces some of the greatest whites from both its premier cru and grand cru sites. Citrus fruit, gun flint and oyster shell are just some of the notes it offers. Further south lies the Côte d’Or or the “Golden Slope”. This is the pinnacle of all Burgundian wine as it is the home to its capital town of Beaune, as well as to its greatest wines and villages – Gevrey Chambertin, Chambolle Musigny, Vosne Romanée, Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet. Further south in the Côte Challonaise and the Maconnais, one can find some of Burgundy’s best priced wines, including appellations such as Mercurey and Givry for the reds, as well as Montagny, Bouzeron Aligoté, St. Véran, Macon and Pouilly Fuissé for the whites. ...
