Red Burgundy de Vogue 1993 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

1 Bottle 75cl £475
  • Domaine Comte de Vogüé
    1993
    Musigny Vieilles Vignes
    Grand Cru Red 750 ml
    Score: 97
    Tasted: Oct 01, 2005
    Drink: Try from 2008+
    Issue: 20
    Tasting note: Still remarkably primary with a nose that is the crystalline essence of black cherry pinot sap. Massively structured, thick flavors with dense, ripe tannins that are completely buffered by all the extract. This is flat out great and still very much a baby. In my view, this is the best de Vogüé Musigny since at least '71 and is a monument in the making as it will live for 50 years without breathing hard. Multiple, and consistent, notes.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 1995 Chambolle 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

3 Bottle 75cl £575£550
  • Domaine Comte de Vogüé
    1995
    Chambolle-Musigny "Les Amoureuses"
    1er Cru Red 750 ml

    Tasting note: This remains quite primary with high-pitched dark fruit aromas and flavors that display excellent complexity and near perfect balance. While not especially powerful, it offers solid concentration and fine length. One of the better de Vogüé Amoureuses in recent years and shows particularly good balance and a fine sense of "pinot noirness".

    Tasting note: (young vine Musigny fruit up to 25 years of age - there will be a back label on the bottle to indicate the source of the grapes; with thanks to Dr. Reed Day and also opened from personal storage). This is slowly beginning to unwind to reveal a still cool, reserved and supremely elegant nose of drop dead gorgeous pinot aromas as well as a mix of stone and red and black fruits. It is already showing excellent complexity, fine intensity and very fine length all the while exuding an unmistakable level of class and refinement. There is still a touch of youthful toughness on the finish though after an hour or so of air, it begins to mellow out so the '99 1ers has not quite yet arrived at its peak drinkability, at least not for my taste. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes. It bears pointing out that this is evolving slowing and while it certainly can be enjoyed now with 30 minutes or so of air, it will need another 5 to 8 years before it arrives at its full apogee.

    Tasting note: This is slowing transforming itself into a really lovely wine of weight, depth and intensity with a richly detailed, expressive nose and impressively pure and harmonious flavors that offer superb clarity of expression. This is a classical Burgundy lover's dream with linearity, purity, harmony and simply knock out delineation plus a subtle complexity that is finesse personified. Consistent notes and this is one of those wine that has such balance that it can easily be enjoyed now or held for further development. Personally, I would advise holding it for another year or two but as I note, it can certainly be drunk now with pleasure.

    Tasting note: A perfumed, elegant and overtly spicy red currant and floral-suffused nose is still quite fresh as it displays only hints of secondary development. The medium full flavors are ripe, sophisticated and supple while exhibiting an attractive mineral streak that imparts the impression of both lift and firmness to the wonderfully long and well-balanced finish. I quite like this as the grace and class of its origins are plain to see. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2010 Chambolle 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

1 Case 3 75cl £2,075
  • Tasting note: A strikingly layered nose of cassis flowers, black cherry, spice, stone and violets serves as a stunning introduction to the cool, restrained and highly vibrant medium-bodied flavors where the transparency is something to see as this is positively crystalline. The lilting and caressing flavors glide across the palate yet there is an explosiveness to the finish that is almost unexpected. Lovely juice that is fashioned in an understated and altogether classy style.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2010 Bonnes Mares

2 Case 12 75cl £4,350
  • **Note: from a 2.7 ha parcel situated entirely in terres rouges soil in the south-west portion of the vineyard** Not unexpectedly here the brooding and somber nose is completely different with a much greater emphasis on earth and smoked tea nuances on the darker hued fruit that includes cassis and black raspberry. The rich, powerful and impressively concentrated large-scaled flavors exhibit a sleek muscularity on the pure, balanced and gorgeously long finish. Like most of these 2010s, there is a serenity present here that allows the wines to unfold elegantly and coherently. This is a compact and quite forceful wine yet it delivers that power with no sense of weight or heaviness.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2011 Musigny Vieilles Vignes -

1 Case 3 150cl £2,280
  • A remarkably attractively cool and restrained nose of various red berries, spice and a beautiful array of floral elements complements well the rich and equally cool mineral-tinged big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension on the clean and pure finish that delivers strikingly good length. This intensely mineral-driven effort is also clean and firm but with slightly better phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements which should allow this beauty to age successfully for many years to come.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2012 Bonnes Mares

1 Case 12 75cl £3,400£3,200
  • Deep ruby. This is also quite floral yet the character of it is from whiter flowers than those of the Amoureuses. In addition there is good ripeness but also fine freshness to the plum, black cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas. The supple but tautly muscular medium weight plus flavors possess a suave mouth feel thanks to the abundant dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the very firm tannic spine on the highly persistent finish. Patience will be required.

    Note: from a 2.67 ha parcel situated entirely in terres rouges soil in the south-west portion of the vineyard
    Producer note: Resident enologist François Millet described the 2013 vintage as one that had a "very difficult spring with an equally poor flowering that produced a lot of shatter and a high incidence of shot berries. Somewhat curiously we had a very solid July and August, which in the last few vintages has been rare, but despite the clement conditions the maturities didn't really progress much. By contrast September was pretty much lousy and in particular the second half of it. The wet and humid conditions were perfect to allow rot to spread and to spread fast and we were really worried that we could have a serious problem. We chose to begin picking on the 5th of October and picked slowly until the 13th. While the general level of quality was quite high we did have to do significant sorting and I would put our sorting losses at around 10%. Between these losses and the poor flowering we wound up with a bit less overall yield than we obtained in 2012. With respect to the vinifications the fruit had a very high solid to liquid ratio so we had to be careful not to over exact the structural elements because it would have been easy to do. As to the wines, I love them because the terroir almost couldn't be any clearer. They are refreshing, intense and balanced and I think they're going to surprise a lot of people in the sense that such a difficult vintage could produce such beautiful wines. Moreover I believe that they will continue to put on weight as they age because the musts were actually denser than the wines seem to be now so all of that dry extract has to show up sooner or later." The 2012s, revisited below, are simply terrific and were bottled between February and March 2014 and have turned out even slightly better than I originally foresaw.

    Tasting note: This is much more deeply pitched and even more reserved though aggressive swirling liberates a wonderfully complex array of plum and black raspberry liqueur-like aromas where added breadth is present in the form of spice, earth, pepper, dried flowers and a hint of underbrush. The dense, powerful and broad-shouldered flavors brim with dry extract that imparts a velvety mouth feel to the vibrant finale as well as pushes the very firm core of tannins to the background. This is a big but beautifully well-balanced wine that should amply reward up to 20 years of cellaring.
     

     

    NMThis must be the first time that I have tasted the Bonnes-Mares from barrel and thought it could be mistaken for the Musigny! The 2013 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has an intense black pepper and blackberry bouquet, touches of mint and forest floor in the background, growing in intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile and quite obdurate tannin, the acidity finely tuned and cutting through the surfacing blueberry and blackberry fruit. There is plenty of spice furnishing the finish and lingering long after the wine has departed, completing a seriously fine Bonnes-Mares that is stylish and intellectual.

    Tasting note: This is also quite aromatically restrained with its cool, airy and extraordinarily complex nose that features notes of red raspberry, black cherry, violet, rose petal, Asian-style spices, in particular cinnamon and anise plus a hint of orange pekoe tea. There is superb concentration to the intensely stony and well-delineated broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with palate soaking dry extract that helps to buffer that imposingly powerful, tautly muscular and massively long finish. This is breathtaking in just how much power and intensity it packs yet there isn't a hair out of place. In a word, 'wow'!

  • Tasting note: A completely different aromatic profile is present with its much earthier array of notably fresh red berries and discreet sauvage aromas. There is excellent richness to the muscular and full-bodied flavors that also possess fine mid-palate concentration that coats the mouth and helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the seamlessly proportioned finale. This very firmly structured effort is clearly going to require 15 to 20 years to arrive at its peak.
