The producer

Originally dating back to 1450, the estate was acquired by the de Vogue family in 1766. Comte Georges de Vogue took over in 1925 and lead the estate into fame in following decades. The current generation of winemaker and vignerons have the estate in top form, universally considered one of the great estates of Burgundy.

The name of the Comte de Vogue became synonymous with that of Chambolle-Musigny perhaps because they hold 7.25ha of the total 10.7ha of Le Musigny itself, and 2.75ha of Bonnes-Mares with a further 1.8ha of Premier Cru.

The Comtes de Vogue labels a great wine under the Premier Cru banner from young Grand Cru vines, and perceivably de-classified Grand Cru wines, that is basically a mini-Musigny. They also bottle an extremely rare Musigny Blanc.

The wine

Comte Georges de Vogue is the largest landowner in the Musigny Grand Cru, with 7.25 hectares, thus owning 70% of the entire grand cru. This is a truly fine expression of Pinot Noir, more structured than the Bonnes Mares and with an almost ethereal purity and minerally focused texture and finish. Musigny never sees more than one third new oak, thus preserving the wine’s compelling transparency.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
