Join us this evening for this small-scale dinner exploring the two grands crus of Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé, side by side. In three of the flights we will do this “vintage pairs” style to really hone in on the differences in expression of these two climats (as well as checking in on some top years). And we begin with a very rare, unique expression of Musigny – in white, from 2018.
One of the finest and most ancient domaines in Burgundy, emblematic of the noble finesse of Chambolle-Musigny, the domaine is the largest owner of Musigny Grand Cru. From this vineyard they produce 3 wines – the red Musigny Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, their Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru (100% Musigny Grand Cru, but from vines less than 25 years old), and Musigny Blanc Grand Cru. Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru, and Chambolle-Musigny (a villages-level label that includes some 1er Cru Baudes and Fuées) complete their unrivalled Chambolle-Musigny collection.
This domaine is unique in its long history, tracing its beginnings to the 15th century with ownership passing through 20 generations to the present proprietors. In 1925, it was inherited by Comte Georges de Vogüé, who ran the domaine for 52 years, and it is now owned by his granddaughters, Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette. It is managed by Eric de Bourgogne (vineyard), François Millet (winemaking), and Jean-Luc Pépin (commercial & administration). In 2021, François Millet, who had joined in 1986, retired and was replaced by Jean Lupatelli.
