2015 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru

Rating: 96+ Points

The fabulous 2015 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is a stunning wine in the making, wafting from the glass with a deep and pure bouquet of red cherry, raspberry, summer fruit compote, orange rind and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is ample, multidimensional and layered, with incredible depth and inherent reserve at the core, excellent concentration, vibrant flavors, and a long, intense finish. Above all, however, this Musigny is defined by its depth and sense of completeness. This will demand and reward patience.

The philosophical François Millet recapitulated the history of the 2015 vintage, which he describes as “a sublime year” which remains resolutely “terroir driven” despite its ripeness and concentration. It was a trying season, he reminded me, with a dry summer alleviated by rain—but not too much rain—at the critical moment in August. “It was quite stressful, because at the beginning we didn’t know that it would have a happy ending,” he reflected. It was also a year of abundant structure, where “it was not necessary to push.” The ensuing range of wines is very fine, including a Bonnes Mares which ranks high among recent vintages, and a beautiful Musigny Vieilles Vignes which I suspect will evolve at a glacial pace.
