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.
95-98 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2014
Very dark, bright red-ruby. Outstanding lift to the aromas of blueberry, licorice and violet. Silky yet taut on entry, then locked up tight in the middle, hinting at dark fruits and crushed rock. There's no easy sweetness today, but this backward wine already shows great palate-staining intensity. The explosive finish features noble tannins, a hint of bitter chocolate and uncanny lingering sweetness. This potentially great 2012 conveys a powerful impression of solidity.
