Tasting Notes

2002 Domaine de la Vougeraie Musigny

(just two and a half barrels produced; from fruit destemmed by hand): Ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of red fruits, licorice and minerals. Vibrant, very intensely flavored and tightly wound; at once powerful and elegant. Superb building finish features serious tannins that are not at all hard or dry. An extremely young Musigny that will need at least seven or eight years and should be long-lived.

Note: from a tiny parcel of only .17 ha; the fruit was destemmed berry by berry

Burghound Tasting note: This has completely eaten its oak, leaving a tastefully understated nose of blackberry, cassis and intensely spicy and floral fruit aromas followed by plum-infused, gorgeously sappy, superbly complex and structured flavors with an almost painfully intense finish that goes on and on. This can't quite match the complexity of the Bonnes Mares but it is even more elegant and certainly finer but not necessarily better, just different.
