About Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue
With it's iconic rooster emblem, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue is one of the most recognizable and revered producers of the Cote de Nuits. Much of this has to do with the estate owning nearly three-quarters of the grand cru Musigny, considered by some to be the finest Pinot Noir vineyard in the world. Founded in 1450, Comte Georges de Vogue managed to gain early stakes in some of Burgundy's most exceptional vineyards.

($265-$300; bottled in March) Good deep red. Explosive, sharply delineated aromas of raspberry, minerals, mocha, tar and cola; at once supersweet and sappy. Silky on entry, then hugely concentrated and dense with extract. The flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, cherry, spices and minerals are brilliantly defined and vibrant. Like an essence of Bonnes-Mares, with the wine's firm tannins perfectly buffered by a wave of finishing fruit. Millet emphasizes that the estate's holding is in the southeastern, "more elegant" section of this grand cru, where there is reddish topsoil over decomposed limestone, not the white marl found in the northwest corner of the cru.
