    A more elegant but more restrained nose features equally pure and high-toned red pinot fruit, stone and a hint of spice that gives way to gorgeously detailed, precise and energetic medium-bodied flavors that possess a textured mouth feel that sweeps into a focused and sappy finish of controlled power. In sum, this is a highly intense wine of finesse.

    Bright medium red. Higher-toned on the nose than the village wine, offering aromas of cherry, raspberry, spices and mint, lifted by menthol and anise. Suave and silky but youthfully tight, with its sweet fruit under wraps today. A piquant element of orange zest gives the firmly tannic finish a distinctly bracing quality. This is made from young vines in Musigny.

    Made from the younger vines in the domaine's holdings in Le Musigny - 10 to 25 year olds! Very bright, limpid crimson. Really quite sweet and rich and very different in character and class from the village wine - much tighter and more ambitious. There is just so much turbo-charged fruit here. Lots of fine tannins and energy on the finish. This wine gives the sense of being so good that it has no need to make the taster love it. Lots of minerality.

    The 2008 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru (from young vines in Musigny) is a powerful, inward wine. There is lovely depth to the fruit, but the wine remains tightly coiled at this stage, even if occasional glimmers of richness emerge over time. Cloves, cinnamon and a host of other spiced notes add complexity on the finish. This is another superb, textured wine from de Vogue. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.

    Medium body. A bit closed on the nose w/ pleasant strawberry, red notes. Classic pinot acidity, making it pair well w/ food.

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.
