Description

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.

Review

The mature vines in the domaine’s immense holding (5.56ha of old vines) have given us a wine with the youthful, plummy exuberance of Chambolle but with added precision and depth, revealing saline mineral notes, plus hints of flowers and spice. On the palate, the silky texture initially beguiles, and with time the firm structure and long finish become evident. Ageing in 35% new casks helps the wine retain an admirable purity of fruit. The 2020 vintage was the last vinified by François Millet, who took his retirement at a high point in his career.
