Red Burgundy de Vogue 2000 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

1 Case 6 75cl £3,600

    2000
    Musigny - Vieilles Vignes
    Grand Cru Red 750 ml
    Score: 94
    Tasted: Apr 24, 2016
    Drink: Now+
     
    Tasting note: An extravagantly spicy and notably ripe yet very fresh nose offers up a very pretty mix of both red and black currant aromas that are beginning to display the initial hints of secondary development while being trimmed in discreet hints of wood and menthol. The beautifully elegant and gorgeously textured flavors exude a lovely minerality before culminating in a rich, round and utterly delicious finish that delivers excellent persistence. This is not especially big or dense as de Vogüé Musigny goes but is tautly muscular and defined. For my taste this has arrived at the very front end of its peak drinkability though I underscore that it should age gracefully for many years to come. Consistent notes.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2005 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

2 Case 6 75cl £7,750
  • Prepare to be transported. A positively brilliant nose of violet and rose petal shines against a background of intensely spiced extravagant red and black pinot fruit nuanced by hints of earth and stone and this minerality continues onto the surprisingly supple flavors that convey a remarkable sense of energy and power on the almost unbelievably intense, focused and structured finish that seems to go on and on without end. And the '05 VV has what all truly great burgundies have which is that extra dimension of power without weight as this carries terrific punch and power yet delivers that explosiveness with impeccable class and grace. While I am duly mindful of the many legendary wines this domaine has produced (see the database for all vintages reviewed dating to 1919), the 2005 could very well join the list of the all time greats, there is really that much potential here. Whether it will ultimately transcend the heights achieved by the 1919 or the 1949 (among many others) remains an open question, I have zero doubt that 2005 will be a genuinely great vintage for this wine. Brilliance personified and absolutely a 'wow' wine, in fact, this merits a double 'wow'.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2009 Chambolle 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

2 Case 6 75cl £4,500
  • Drink: 2021+
    Don't miss! Outstanding
    Tasting note: An extremely fresh and strikingly complex nose speaks of violets, anise, clove and cinnamon on the mélange of red and blue pinot fruit. The detailed and ultra fine middle weight flavors are also intensely mineral-driven and culminate in a posed, harmonious and explosively long finish where an interesting note of mandarin surfaces. A text book Amoureuses.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2011 Chambolle 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

1 Case 12 75cl £5,750
  • Tasting note: This is notably more deeply colored with a more pronounced floral character to the exceptionally spicy, pure and stony aromas that feature notes of violets, plum and cassis. There is a beguiling sense of freshness to the middle weight flavors that possess an ultra-sophisticated mouth feel as there is a lovely sense of refinement to the fine-grained tannins that are supporting the beautifully complex mineral-driven and well-balanced finish. This should reward well mid to perhaps even longer-term cellaring. BH

     

    Deep, bright red. Subtle, pure nose offers black raspberry, black cherry, mint, menthol and a hint of citrus skin. Wonderfully silky and sweet but the black fruit flavors come off more savory than sugary owing to the wine's strong limestone character. Finishes sappy, uncompromisingly dry and very long, with firm tannins and lovely mineral and floral lift.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2012 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

1 Case 12 75cl £7,600
  • A gorgeously spicy nose is comprised of liqueur-like dark berry fruit scents that also display plenty of floral influence that includes notes of lavender, violet and, somewhat curiously, honeysuckle. There is outstanding concentration and punch to the seductively textured and marvelously intense big-bodied flavors that are borderline robust as the supporting tannins are dense but refined. I really like the Zen-like sense of harmony to the explosively long finish that really stains the palate. In a word, terrific.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2016 Bonnes Mares

1 Case 3 75cl £1,200
  • Tasting note: Deep ruby. Once again there is an exuberant freshness to the nose of plum, violet, peony, spice and earth aromas where a top note of kirsch is present. There is outstanding density and power to the big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that deliver fine complexity on the caressing, sappy and harmonious finish. This too is lovely and should drink well a bit earlier than it normally does if that's your preference.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2016 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

2 Case 3 75cl £2,200
  • A restrained and cool and yet perfumed and ultra-spicy array offers up aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and a wide range of floral elements. The concentrated, tautly muscular and tension-filled flavors possess excellent depth of material as well as an abundance of minerality while exhibiting superb persistence on the firm, dusty, youthfully austere and built-to-age finish where a hint of bitter cherry pit appears. This sleek and classy effort will need an extended stay in a cool cellar. In a word, brilliant.

    Grand Cru Red 750 ml
    Score: 93

    Tasting note: A very ripe yet agreeably fresh nose reflects notes of blue berry, plum liqueur and violet that are cut with spice, menthol and earth hints. The exceptionally rich and impressively full-bodied flavors evidence a taut muscularity, all wrapped in an overtly powerful and lingering finish that is naturally sweet. As one would reasonably expect this is quite firm; indeed it's borderline rustic.

    Producer note: Resident enologist François Millet described the 2018 growing season as "territoire inconnu [unknown territory] because Burgundy just shouldn't be this hot and dry. And the very wet spring had implications for an uneven fruit set, which then had implications for an uneven véraison. We picked carefully from the 30th of August to the 5th of September and brought in fruit that basically could not have been any more pristine. More importantly, the fruit was very phenolically ripe because if the fruit isn't perfectly clean you can sort out what doesn't please you but if it's not phenolically mature, there is nothing to be done about that. I have been doing this a long time and I have never seen colors this dark or that appeared quite so fast with no manipulations at all! I literally did no punch downs at all with the exception of the Bonnes Mares. Yields were not high and especially in the context of the vintage as they averaged right at 30 hl/ha with potential alcohols that ranged from 13.5 to 14%. The other thing we did that I believe was very important to preserving the freshness was to postpone the malos by running the air conditioning system in the cellar. Our rationale was to try to mimic the conditions that existed 30 years ago when the months of October, November and December following the harvest were typically much cooler and thus the temperatures in the cellars were naturally much lower. This of course delayed the malos until the spring and helped to keep the wines fresh. As to the wines, they're atypical but actually pretty interesting. The fruit is a mix of both red and dark and the terroir transparency, while initially relatively muted, has become much clearer as the élevage has progressed. I doubt that they will evolve to the point where they're classic Burgundies but they already appear to be more classic than say 2003 or 2009." At the time of my November visit Millet was not sure if he would fine the 2018s but said that they would definitely not be filtered. The 2017s, revisited below, were bottled between February and April 2019. Readers should be aware that as of 2015 the Musigny Blanc is once again being declared as such after having been declared as a Bourgogne Blanc since the 1994 vintage; there will be a review for the 2018 Musigny Blanc in Issue 79.

    Tasting note: An attractively fresh and ultra-pure nose features notes of the pure essence of black cherry, cassis, spice and whiffs of herbal tea and violet. The succulent and nicely rich medium weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the refined and refreshing if dusty and mildly edgy finish. My sense is that the edginess will dissipate once the tannins begin to mellow.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2017 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

1 Case 3 75cl £1,450
  • Note: from an incredible 6.46 ha parcel, which doesn't include the .67 ha section planted to chardonnay

    Tasting note: An openly exotic nose offers glimpses of black cherry liqueur, ginger, Asian-style tea, sandalwood and orange peel along with plenty of floral elements. The tighter and much more mineral-driven big-bodied flavors also possess evident muscle on the powerful and dense yet beautifully refined finish that goes on and on. This is also a bit less structured though with that said, this is going to need at least 15 years to reach its apogee. In sum, this is relatively refined though still a very serious wine.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2018 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

2 Case 3 75cl £1,950
  • The 2018 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is even darker than the Bonnes-Mares. It has a spectacular bouquet of intense black fruit, blueberries and shucked oyster shells, the mineralité heightened over the Bonnes-Mares and lending a great deal of precision. The palate is medium-bodied with blueberry, boysenberry and black currant fruit, extraordinary tension, razor-sharp acidity and a dash of white pepper on the crystalline finish. One of the finest Musignys I have tasted from barrel at de Vogüé.

White Burgundy de Vogue 2017 Musigny Blanc

1 Bottle 75cl £775£750
  • Producer note: Resident enologist François Millet described the 2017 growing season as one "where we were seriously concerned about the possibility of another April frost damage nightmare. As it turned out the temperatures were low enough to cause injury to the new leaves but there wasn't the necessary humidity so we dodged a bullet. The rest of the season was relatively benign with a precocious flowering and warm if not scorching summer. As is often the case after a vintage where there is frost damage, the fruit set was abundant so we spent a lot of time controlling yields. We chose to begin picking on the 2nd of September under cool harvest conditions and brought in very clean fruit that required very little sorting. Yields were in the 30 to 35 hl/ha range where the potential alcohols averaged right at 13% so I chaptalized nothing. There was quite a bit of juice yet with reasonable solid to liquid ratios so I did not do a saignée. In the same spirit, I also chose to do no punching down at all as the grapes gave up their colors and extract easily. As to the wines, they're marked by their freshness and energy plus they have excellent transparency. I would put 2017 in the category of sunny and warm vintages such as 2009, 2000 and 1997 but importantly, 2017 has more concentration than any of those." Readers should be aware that as of 2015 the Musigny Blanc is once again being declared after having been declared as a Bourgogne Blanc since the 1994 vintage. Millet noted that the Musigny Blanc is raised in 20% new wood from the Tronçais forest. There are two parcels in both Grands and Petits Musigny measuring .67 ha and the dates of plantation are 1986, 1987, 1991 and 1997.

    Tasting note: A discreet touch of wood can be found on the overtly floral-infused aromas that display additional breadth in the form of Poire Williams (pear brandy), petrol and citrus zest. There is a touch of wood on the palate as well of the caressing large-scaled flavors that display an abundance of both dry extract and minerality on the impressively long and very dry finale that is a bit less youthfully austere than it usually is.
