RATINGS

95-98Stephen Tanzer

Candied raspberry, blood orange, peony, crushed stone and white pepper. Like liquid silk on the palate, offering an uncanny combination of sweetness and energy. The tactile, high-pitched flavors of pomegranate, citrus peel and flowers...

19Jancis Robinson

...Such energy and integrity. Savoury and dense and nothing at all like the fruity opulence of Jadot’s Bonnes Mares. Intellectual and dense with lots of tension. Long and reverberant.

94-96The Wine Advocate

...conquers the palate and all of the senses, both intellectual and hedonistic, with its deeply expressive fruit. It shows dazzling finesse and a spherical personality that is breathtaking...

93-96Burghound.com

...dazzling nose of anise, clove and cinnamon nuances serving to add an exotic element to the menthol-infused dark berry fruit, cassis and mineral-inflected nose. The very rich big-bodied flavors ooze dry extract... in perfect balance...

PRODUCER

Louis Jadot

Maison Louis Jadot is one of Burgundy’s most respected negociants. Founded in 1859 by the Jadot family, the prestige and quality of the estate’s wines were well established in the 19th century. The family continued buying highly desirable vineyards in the 20th century. In 1985 the estate was sold to Rudy Kopf, Jadot’s American importer. Located in Beaune, the estate has 336 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. Though all the maison’s wines are known for their high quality, signature wines are the Bonnes Mares, Chambertin-Close de Beze, Chevalier-Montrachet les Demoiselles, Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Musigny. Pierre-Henry Gagey is president.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Chambolle-Musigny, Le Musigny

Musigny is considered one of the greatest vineyards in the Cote d’Or, in Burgundy. At 26.5 acres it includes two sections, Grand Musigny and Les Petits Musigny. The vineyard is 260 to 300 meters in elevation and the soil is unusual for the region, a mix of limestone and red clay. Comte de Vogue owns about three-quarters of the vineyard, with a holding of 17 acres. The next largest landowners are Jacques-Frederic Mugnier, with 3.2 acres; and Jacques Prieur with 1.7 acres. Also noteworthy is Leroy’s tiny .7 acre holding. Though most of the vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir, Comte de Vogue plants a small parcel of Chardonnay, which is sold as Bourgogne blanc due to the relatively youth of the Chardonnay vines. Wine writer Clive Coates has written that “at its best the red wine (of Musigny) can be quite simply the most delicious wine to be found in Burgundy.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
