2018 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny Grand Cru Cuvee Vieilles Vignes Cote de Nuits France
$799.99 USD $888.99 USD
"All the vines that are used to produce this extensive cuvée of Musigny are over 25 years' old, so it always has good concentration. But in 2018, it's an especially big, dense, powerful wine with masses of inky colour, assertive one-third new oak, plenty of plush bramble and black cherry fruit, undertones of sweet spices and liquorice and a chalky flourish. Needs time."

"The 2018 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is even darker than the Bonnes-Mares. It has a spectacular bouquet of intense black fruit, blueberries and shucked oyster shells, the mineralité heightened over the Bonnes-Mares and lending a great deal of precision. The palate is medium-bodied with blueberry, boysenberry and black currant fruit, extraordinary tension, razor-sharp acidity and a dash of white pepper on the crystalline finish. One of the finest Musignys I have tasted from barrel at de Vogüé."
