2012 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Winery-Direct Release

SKU #1180522 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Musigny Vielles Vignes Grand Cru from de Vogüé has slightly brighter and more vivacious fruit than J-F Mugnier, and in fact, the two wines seem to go in two different trajectories in the glass, this blossoming and the other becoming more occluded. De Vogüé's Musigny is unashamedly floral in style, very elegant and yet delineated. There is a noticeable estuary scents, mudflats and seaweed, that begin to permeate the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, wonderful acidity and succinctly integrated new oak that is barely tangible. It is intense but elegant, long and tender in the mouth. It is a fabulous Musigny, one of the best that the domaine has produced in recent years. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

97 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A brooding but gorgeously spicy nose is comprised of liqueur-like dark berry fruit scents that also display plenty of floral influence that includes notes of lavender, violet and, somewhat curiously, honeysuckle. There is outstanding concentration and punch to the seductively textured and marvelously intense big-bodied flavors that are borderline robust as the supporting tannins are dense but refined. I really like the Zen-like sense of harmony to the explosively long and pungent mineral-driven finish that really stains the palate. This is flat out remarkable. Inner quote mark (1/2015)

97 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2012 Musigny Vieilles Vignes from the Comte de Vogüé is also a brilliant wine in the making. The deep, pure and nascently complex nose wafts from the glass in a stunning blend of red and black cherries, raspberries, red plums, cocoa, a stunning base of soil tones, hints of the smokiness to come, pungent (morning) violets and a discreet base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and perfectly focused, with a sappy core of fruit, glorious transparency, fine-grained tannins and impeccable balance on the very, very long, pure and perfectly focused finish. A great wine. Inner quote mark (11/2013)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, bright red. Brilliantly complex, focused nose offers scents of redcurrant, blueberry, crushed stone, spices, red licorice, menthol and botanical herbs. Boasts extraordinary sweetness and depth to its chewy, sappy red and dark fruit flavors. Really bulletproof fruit here! Spreads out on the back half to saturate every square millimeter of the palate, finishing with penetrating berry fruit and salty minerality. Remarkably long and tactile. (ST) 96+ Inner quote mark (3/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Almost black. Not much immediately on the nose. You know there's a lot buried in there but for the moment it is really quite severe. All buried! Masses of tannin. A different dimension to anything I have tasted so far. The most tannic wine of the lot. Lots of introversion. You'll need to wait SO long for this! Massive. So different from the other 2012s. More solid and tough but not aggressively dry. Opened out a little on the nose to show some intense fruit. (JR) 18.5/20 points Inner quote mark (12/2013)

K&L Notes

96-98 Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "Magnificent and utterly complete, the 2012 Musigny Vieilles Vignes is a wine of contrasts. At times powerful, while at others much more hushed and seductive, the 2012 changes constantly. In many ways, its elusive personality captures the essence of what makes Burgundy so compelling. Bright red fruits are woven into a fabric of spice, blood orange and white pepper. The flavors are deep yet wonderfully lifted. It's all right there in the glass. What a pleasure it is to contemplate the 2012 at this early stage in its life." (01/2014)
