The Story

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé has remained by inheritance in the same family since 1450. Twenty generations enlarged and enriched this family estate whose stewardship continues with Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette. They themselves are grand-daughters of the legendary Comte Georges de Vogüé who inherited the estate in 1925 and ran it for over 50 years; His daughter Elisabeth, Baronne Bertrand de Ladoucette, managed the estate from the early 1980s until 2002, and it was under her tenure that was established the new executive team that exists today - Eric
Bourgogne, Chef de Culture in 1996, François Millet, Maître de Chai and Oenologue in
1986, and Jean-Luc Pépin, Sales Director in 1988.

The apex of Millet’s portfolio at Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is the 7 hectares of Musigny Grand Cru. Great care is taken with the production of the noble grape, with only the oldest vines — a total of 3.8 hectares — used to produce wine with the most consistency and depth of character. In most vintages only 900 or so cases of the Musigny comes to market; the result is a wine to be sought out and treasured.

Millet works alongside Jean-Luc Pepin, who runs the Domaine and Eric Bourgogne, who tends the vines. It is a triumvirate that produces outstanding results vintage upon vintage and has enabled the domaine to recover its reputation in recent years. In 1925 the estate was inherited by the Comte Georges de Vogüé and, until the early 60’s, fabulous wines were crafted from the plots under his ownership in Chambolle. The Comte’s absence from Burgundy in the 60’s and 70’s saw quality levels slide and it is the current team that have maintained a celebrated level of quality under the ownership of the Comte’s granddaughters since the early 80’s. Winemaking at the Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is like a conversation, with the wines matching Millet’s lyrical poeticism with structure, energy and a complex cornucopia of flavours.

Written Notes

The 1961 Comte de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes was a grassy lassy, showing excellent acidity amongst its beefy, bloody and brothy components.  There was horse and hay in this ‘smokier’ Musigny from an underrated vintage.  This was also a bit sassy to go with its grassy, and wild herbs and coffee developed in the glass (96).

 John Kapon / CEO / Ackerr Merrall & Condit, Pro (United States)  tasted  Musigny Vieilles Vignes 1961  ( Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé )

"The second Burgundy had aromas of tobacco and hot sauce, and then the tomato ensued. This was tomato in all of its stages and splendor, showing different hues and even some sun-dried qualities. The palate was rich and gamy, showing more tomato and morphing into Bloody Mary city. The 1966 Comte de Vogue Musigny V.V. was a long and fleshy wine, gaining in the glass over time (95+)."
