Description

The Reserve Cellar is extremely proud to present an exceedingly rare and exclusive opportunity to purchase ‘box set’ collections of museum stock direct from the cellars of the House of Comte du Vogue.

Featuring 3 packs of the extraordinary Comte du Vogue “Les Amoureuses” across 14 renowned Burgundy vintages. These rare museum wine 3 packs of Comte du Vogue “Les Amoureuses” have just arrived and we are excited to release the entire collection exclusively to Burgundy wine lovers in Australia. This is a unique opportunity for a wine buff to create an immediate cellar with such depth and perfection with the knowledge that all the wines are in absolute mint condition and offered exclusively to you!

Having 3 bottles of each great vintage means you can open one to share on that “very special occasion” and still have two precious left in the cellar. There is only one pack available per vintage.

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is unique as it can trace its history all the way back to the 15th century. Since then the Domaine has remained in the hands of the same family by inheritance or marriage. De Vogüé is also unique in that they only make wines from Chambolle-Musigny. All vineyards are grown in a more or less organic way, though this is not indicated on the label or certified. More than 12.5ha are owned. The main Grand Crus are Musigny and Bonnes-Mares. Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé also owns 0.56ha of Chambolle- Musigny’s Amoureuses vineyard, a premier cru situated just below Musigny and regarded by many as of grand cru quality. For 10 years Bourgogne has used horses to plough Amoureuses to protect the vines, which were planted in 1964 and 1974. Their parcels are on stony topsoils over oolitic limestone. Millet characterises the wine: ‘It’s the first lady of Chambolle, but not frivolous.’ Or, to extend his metaphor, it’s like Musigny’s little sister, always refined, yet never lacking backbone.

Review

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses from Comte de Vogüé has a quintessential “Amoureuses” bouquet with opulent and generous black cherries and blueberry aromas, distant scents of oak vanillin developing in the glass. This is very floral and perfumed. The palate is medium-bodied with very lithe and supple tannins. The acidity is well-judged and it is blessed with a very satin-like, harmonious finish that demonstrates great persistence. This does not quite match up to the example I tasted last year, but I suspect that it will begin to blossom in 2-3 years.
