Winemaker's Notes

The 1993 vintage of this wine was ranked #5 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1995

The Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is inextricably linked to the Grand Cru vineyard of Musigny—in some eyes the pinnacle of Pinot Noir—a wine that should be both complete and profound but never heavy: 'majesty itself' claims Clive Coates.

"Deep, saturated-cherry red. Wow, what a nose; the glass doesn't even need a swirl to give up chocolate- and creme-brulee-covered, red-cherry fruit. Super complexity. The nose is well-matched to a beautifully textured palate, incredibly complex flavors that cling to your gums, fine tannins that are completely covered by the fruit. Magnificent now, I'm drooling at the prospect of its 20th birthday!" - The Burgundy-Report.com

"Deep, bright red. Offers an extra dimension on the nose, with captivating sappy red fruits, minerals, blood orange, clove, menthol and bitter chocolate. Enters the mouth thick and opulent, then wonderfully dense and seamless in the middle, with compelling sweetness and piquant minerality. The back half of the wine shows the powerful, structured side of the vintage, finishing with major tannins and an impression of brooding energy. This may well merit a higher score with a decade or so of bottle aging."
-International Wine Cellar 95+

"This is also extremely floral with a reserved nose that is an airy, spicy and ripe mélange of red and blue Pinot fruit that displays really lovely violet and rose petal notes that are picked up by the minerally, intense and harmonious flavors that are beautifully proportioned and are blessed with ample amounts of dry extract on the essence of Pinot and explosive, energetic and hugely long yet incredible precise finish that is also built on a base of firm minerality. This is almost exotic in character yet everything is in beautiful concordance. In a word, great."
-Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 96/100
