Description
2017 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Vieilles Vignes - Musigny Grand Cru - 1 Magnum (1.5L)
In original wooden case - Red wine - France

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is one of the most famous producers in Burgundy, with a lineage dating back almost half a millennium in the Côte d'Or. The family is part of the history of the village of Chambolle-Musigny, where it produces elegant wines made from Pinot Noir.

Musigny's steep slopes and stony, friable soils, and winemaker Francois Millet's minimally invasive techniques, combine to produce a heavily fragranced wine with notes of violets, raspberries and blackberries. The wine, which is one of the most expensive in Chambolle-Musigny, is highly collectable and has the ability to age for decades.

De Vogüé's history began in the mid 1400s, with money bequeathed from one Jean Moisson to the Chambolle village church, which was the site of the future domaine. Throughout the years, the growing domaine was passed down, eventuating in the ownership today by 20th-generation Comtesse Gérard de Caussans and her sister Marie de Vogüé. The Musigny vines themselves were first mentioned in a marriage settlement in 1528. De Vogüé is rare in that it is one of the only domaines in Burgundy that can trace itself so far back in the region's history.
