2005 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Winery-Direct Release

SKU #1034779 98 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark 14 years of age seems to have had limited effect on this monument of a wine that remains robust, powerful, intense and clearly built to age for decades to come. Indeed so little has changed that I repeat my original note here: A positively brilliant nose of violet and rose petal shines against a background of intensely spiced extravagant red and black pinot fruit nuanced by hints of earth and stone and this minerality continues onto the surprisingly supple flavors that convey a remarkable sense of energy and power on the almost unbelievably intense, focused and structured finish that seems to go on and on without end. And the '05 VV has what all truly great burgundies have which is that extra dimension of power without weight as this carries terrific punch and power yet delivers that explosiveness with impeccable class and grace. Note that unlike the '05 Bonnes Mares (see herein) that is also very much a baby but could actually be enjoyed, there is zero point in opening a bottle of the '05 Musigny VV today as it remains quite closed. Tasted on several occasions recently and in short, this is super-promising but profoundly backward. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, dark, saturated red-ruby. Pungent, noble aromas and flavors of raspberry, flowers, white pepper and powdered stone. Enters the palate with a wonderful lightness, then mounts impressively toward the back and saturates the entire mouth with fruits, spices, minerals and earth. As flamboyantly sweet as this wine is today, it's most remarkable for its power, definition, energy and cut. The tannins are still a bit youthfully spiky but this extremely backward wine finishes with superb thrust, grip and persistence. It's hard to imagine that this wine won't gain in texture and complexity over the next 20 to 30 years of aging in a cold cellar. (ST) 98+ Inner quote mark (3/2008)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark My notes on the 2005 Musigny Vieilles Vignes represent a composite impression from a selection of barrels. There can be little question that this deep, dark wine displays its class of origin, indeed a class of its own in this year’s collection. Fresh black raspberry, pomegranate, blackberry, and iris dominate the nose and stain the palate. A wealth of spice, mineral, chalky and bitter-sweet floral nuances persistently wreath the fruit at all stages. This shows lovely creaminess of texture in counterpoint to the persistent freshness of fruit. The intensely rich yet refreshing palate saturation and tenacious cling exhibited auger well for extended cellaring yet don’t detract from an impression of utmost elegance and refinement. The domaine will begin bottling the wines in spring and all will, as usual, receive “the minimum, gentlest possible” filtration. (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark From 25 to 55 year-old vines. Wonderfully subtly graded crimson. Very heady nose already. The malo finished in July 2006. Very complex and velvety already. This wine caresses the senses. Beautiful texture. Very, very fresh and elegant, lifted and lively. That precision of Amoureuses again but with much more voluptuousness. This wine expresses something that has absolutely nothing to do with ‘winemaking’ -- juts place. Very fine tannins on the finish. Wonderful elegance. Seductive but in a very cerebral way somehow. This wine smells so amazingly fresh, in complete contrast to the more worked noses of the Dominique Laurent wines tasted earlier that day. Tasting the two wines alongside, it’s easy to imagine Amoureuses as a subset of the Musigny There is minerality, elegance and sensuality too. Real éclat. (JR) 18.5/20 points Inner quote mark (8/2007)

K&L Notes

96 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown in the Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep ruby. The nose is intoxicatingly fragranced with enticing notes of jasmine, violets, milk chocolate, red cherries and wild strawberries. The medium+ bodied palate provides fairly high acidity, a medium+ level of silky tannins and adds a very fine touch of minerality to the perfumed fruit. Very long, elegant finish." (11/2008)
