2013 Comte de Vogue Chambolle-Musigny

RATINGS

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Penetrating aromas of raspberry, cranberry, minerals and flowers. Juicy and precise, conveying terrific lift to the primary flavors of raspberry, black pepper, spices and saline minerality.

90The Wine Advocate

...a generous red cherry & bergamot-scented bouquet, a touch of orange zest developing... The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, quite approachable... very elegant & should give 10-12 years of pleasure, possibly more.

90Burghound.com

An elegant & admirably fresh & pure nose reveals notes of black raspberry liqueur that are cut with hints of red cherry, spice & floral nuances... excellent richness... very fine tannins on the delicious & beautifully well-balanced finale.

17Jancis Robinson

Very pure & directed – intense for a village wine but with great energy and very ripe fruit. Lively leathery finish. Unusually ripe fruit. Very long. A very distinctive village wine! Amazing to think that this is only 12.4%. Massive impact.

PRODUCER

Comte de Vogue

Like many of France’s historic wine producers, Domaine Comte de Georges de Vogue, as it is formally known, has been in the same family for more than 500 years. The domaine, based in Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy, produces Grand Cru Pinot Noir and the winemaker since 1985 has been Francois Millet, who is credited with crafting exceptional wines. Comte de Vogue’s premier wine is Musigny Vieilles Vignes, though the domaine also make Chardonnay and other Pinot Noirs. The average age of the vines is 40 to 50 years. About 1,000 cases of Musigny Vieilles Vignes are produced each year.

REGION

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

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

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.
