2011 Chambolle Musigny Comte de Vogue

Average critic rating : 89.5 points



A ripe, cool and restrained nose of red and blue pinot fruit that is liberally laced with violet and wet stone nuances leads to textured and solidly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess good punch and a touch of minerality on the persistent finish. There is fine precision as well as a refreshing element of firm but ripe acidity that adds focus without being aggressive. Jan 2014, www.burghound.com, Drink: 2019+



The 2011 Chambolle-Musigny is a pretty, accessible wine, but today I get the impression the 2011 may be headed for a period of dormancy. The relaxed, easygoing personality of the vintage is in evidence, but the fruit isn't as generous or resonant as it was a years ago. I have seen the villages blossom with few years of bottle age, though, so I would give the 2011 time in bottle. Mar 2014, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2016-2026



The 2011 Chambolle-Musigny Village has a fragrant, voluminous bouquet with plush red cherries intermingling with black currant and a touch of cassis. The palate is sweet on the entry with pure black cherry and cassis fruit. The tannins are fine and underpin a linear Chambolle-Musigny: quite conservative in style with sappy black fruit defining the finish. Drink now-2018. ||”April was the hottest for sixty years,” winemaker Francois Millet explained apropos the 2012 vintage. “It sounds strange, but we were hoping for a cool summer to delay the cycle and preserve the freshness. We could have picked on mid-August if the summer had been average. In the end, the vintage was interesting as the minerality is just the right amount. It is a four o’clock vintage?you can just sit there and enjoy it.” Francois summed up the wines himself. To be frank, I still am trying to fathom the style of de Vogue, which I sometimes feel are almost too premeditated, as if so much thought has been expended upon them that they forget the one fundamental?to elicit enjoyment. So while I appreciated the purity of these 2011s, I asked myself whether they would be the same ones that I would choose off the list at what would ineluctably be an expensive dinner.

Deep, bright red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry and coffee/mocha torrefaction. Expressive, rich flavors of crushed cherry, dark raspberry, coffee and spices are nicely framed by spicy acidity. Conveys a jellied fruit character along with an almost warm floral element. This fairly tight, long wine still has some corners that need softening. 90+ Mar 2014, www.vinous.com

Chambolle-Musigny has no shortage of stars though Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue is certainly the most aristocratic estate in the village, and the estate with the grandest holdings: de Vogue holds a whopping seven hectares of Musigny – almost three-quarters of the vineyard.

The domaine can trace its origins back to the 15th Century: that it is still intact is remarkable in itself, though its fame as a top producer came about after the Second World War, and it now sits comfortably at the top table of Burgundy’s great estates.

Le Musigny is obviously the jewel of the estate’s holdings: a parcel of the vineyard is planted to Chardonnay which, in theory, will one day be labelled as Musigny Blanc. For the moment the wine is declassified to Bourgogne Blanc on account of the youth of the vines; anyone lucky enough to have tasted this rarity will attest to its remarkable quality.

Other holdings include a significant parcel – 2.7 hectares – of Bonne Mares and just over half a hectare of Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureueses (a vineyard of grand cru quality if not status).
