Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé owns and cultivates vineyards in the most prestigious terroirs in Burgundy. Their most important vineyard is Musigny, a Grand Cru vineyard in Chambolle-Musigny. Musigny is celebrated for producing exceptional Pinot Noir and is often considered one of the best vineyards in all of Burgundy. The Comte de Vogüé vineyards benefit from a unique combination of limestone and marl soils, which are ideal for Pinot Noir. The careful management of the vineyards and attention to terroir expression contribute to the distinctive character of their wines. The domain practices traditional and non-interventionist wine production methods. The grapes are harvested by hand, carefully sorted and fermented in open wooden barrels. The wines are then aged in French oak barrels for a longer period of time, typically around 18-24 months depending on the vintage. Of the 7.2 hectares in Musigny Grand Cru, 0.65 hectares are planted with Chardonnay. A special and rare white wine is made from this. This Musigny blanc is perhaps the rarest and unique white Grand Cru from Burgundy. Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is also the only one allowed to produce white wine from this.

François Millet began harvesting at Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé on September 2, after working hard throughout the growing season to limit the generous potential yields offered by vines severely affected by the 2016 frost. The Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru 2017 is complex and well defined on the nose, where hints of iodine and black fruit penetrate. The wine has a medium body with a slightly grainy texture. Notes of black truffle and fresh figs complement a fruit profile that welcomes more red fruit towards the finish. Hints of white pepper and sage linger in the aftertaste. This is definitely starting to close in bottle, so give this Musigny a decade to show what it's capable of.
