RATINGS

99Burghound.com

A positively brilliant nose of violet and rose petal...hints of earth and stone and this minerality continues onto the surprisingly supple flavors that convey a remarkable sense of energy and power...intense, focused and structured finish

98+ Stephen Tanzer

As flamboyantly sweet as this wine is today, it's most remarkable for its power, definition, energy and cut.

96The Wine Advocate

The nose is intoxicatingly fragranced with enticing notes of jasmine, violets, milk chocolate, red cherries and wild strawberries...Very long, elegant finish...

18.5Jancis Robinson

This wine expresses something that has absolutely nothing to do with ‘winemaking’ – juts place. Very fine tannins on the finish. Wonderful elegance. Seductive but in a very cerebral way somehow.

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.
