    The 2012 Musigny Grand Cru includes vines planted between 1971 and 1982 that are usually picked at the same time. This was one of the few cuvees that began fermenting after just 48 hours and finished within five days, ditto the malo-lactic that was completed relatively quickly compared to Drouhin's other crus. It has a very sophisticated bouquet with an ethereal sense of delineation and focus (actually reminiscent of a fine Romanee-St.-Vivant.) The palate is silky smooth on the entry with velvet-textured red fruit that is enveloped in creamy, new oak that does not impinge upon the typicity of Musigny. Maybe it just dips before the finish line, but otherwise this is a consummate Musigny.

    (13.5% natural alcohol, with just three grams of acidity): Good full red. Quite closed on the nose, hinting at medicinal red and darker fruits, licorice and wild herbs. Large-scaled, rich and refined, with an almost chocolatey ripeness to the silky dark fruit and saline flavors. Less floral today than the Amoureuses but sweeter and fatter. Today it's the Amoureuses that sings.
