Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé can trace it’s lineage back over 550 years, to 1450 and the Chambolle vines of one Jean Moisson. Highly regarded as the greatest estate in Chambolle Musigny, today the domaine is headed by its 20th generation – Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, the grand daughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé.
The philosophy at de Vogüé is one which tries to blend tradition and modernity. Nothing is done systematically in either the vineyard or the cellar. There is a constant adaptation to both vineyard and vintage conditions. De Vogüé see themselves as intermediaries: nature is the boss, and they are the guardians of the wine.
A ripe and super-fresh nose offers up notes of black raspberry, plum liqueur, Asian-style tea and a whiff of incense. The racy, intense and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors retain outstanding delineation as well as an abundance of palate soaking dry extract before delivering stunningly good length. This incredibly powerful effort is both classy and highly complex and like the Bonnes Mares, is a wine that will live for decades. With that said, it's not so backward and compact to preclude it being approachable after only 10 to 12 years.
