    Full red-ruby. Perfumed aromas of small red berries and exotic, pungent baking spices. Wonderful sappy sweetness and intensity but quite dense and closed in on itself. Superb natural acids brighten and carry the fruit through to a very long, very subtle finish. Tannins are thoroughly buffered by flesh. The '96 will ultimately surpass this bottle, but the '97 may give more pleasure for the next decade.

    Vogue's 1997 Musigny is medium to dark ruby-colored, and exhibits a breathtaking nose of blueberries, licorice, jammy blackberries, violets, Asian spices, and stones. This magnificent wine is medium to full-bodied, sublimely refined, and detailed. It is a great Musigny in a light and lace-like style. Red currants and cherries vie for the taster's attention with spices and fresh clay in its luxurious, yet well-defined, personality. To top things off, this awesome wine's immensely long finish reveals loads of supple tannins, which will ensure the necessary backbone for cellaring.

    Complex, velvety and muscular. Rich and pure, with mineral and wet earth notes, this clean, full-bodied, sweet-tasting, dark-colored red Burgundy is well worth hunting down. Gorgeous backbone of fresh citrus and acidity, but also loads of mellow spice, mocha, coffee and oak-inspired character. The chewy but balanced finish needs time.

    This was in a really good place ' still corpulent and showing plenty of secondary elements (minerals, spice, a touch of brett, etc.). Balanced, silky and elegant. A wine of stature and class. Lived up to its reputation as one of Burgundy's great Grand Crus. Consume before 2014.

Comte de Vogue is often considered the greatest wine estate in Chambolle-Musigny. It traces its history back to 1450 and amazingly, after 20 generations, the same family still runs the show. The domaine owns 7.25 hectares of the Le Musigny vineyard; these average 40 years old and are labeled Vieilles Vignes. The property also includes smaller holdings of Bonnes-Mares and Premier Cru Chambolle-Musigny. The blending of tradition and modernity in winemaking has resulted in wines that are revered by critics and wine lovers around the world.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
