Lot #257. Comte Georges de Vogüé Musigny Cuvée Vieilles Vignes 2009

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 97+ JG.
"The 2009 Musigny Vieilles Vignes from Domaine Comte de Vogüé is a profound young wine in the making. The beautifully complex and again, quite reserved nose offers up a magical blend of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, superb minerality, woodsmoke, a nice note of mustard seed, a definitive touch of iron and a lovely base of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a rock solid core of pure fruit, great soil inflection, lovely acidity, suave, but again, quite substantial tannins and great length and grip on the magical finish. This is still a very young wine that will need all of fifteen years to really reach its apogee of maturity, but it is so good that I will be very surprised if hundred and hundreds of bottles are not drunk in its relative youth, as the wine is going to be very hard to resist after only a few years in the cellar. Another great Comte de Vogüé Musigny." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #30, Dec 2010
Provenance: The Besançon Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,750
