    Bright red-ruby. Explosive, superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of blackberry, peony, orange zest, bitter chocolate and crushed stone. Saline, chewy, stony and tight; much less open-knit today than the Amoureuses, boasting superb density to its black fruit, pepper and spice flavors. Extremely primary, sappy and sweet, finishing with an element of spicy oak, great medicinal reserve and impressive length.

    Deep ruby. This is also quite floral with excellent ripeness but also fine freshness to the plum, black cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas. The supple but tautly muscular medium weight plus flavors possess a suave mouth feel thanks to the abundant dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the very firm tannic spine on the highly persistent and imposingly powerful finish. Here too plenty of patience will be required.

    Healthy, lustrous garnet. Meaty nose with real vigour and some evolution. Velvety and sweetly charming with the density of a grand cru. Maturing very nicely. You could actually enjoy it already. Lovely tannin quality. And great finish.

    Tasted blind at the annual |Burgfest| tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru from de Vogue has a very refined nose: brambly red berry fruit, raspberry preserve and just a touch of damp undergrowth coming through with time. The reduction actually becomes more pronounced with time. The palate is medium-bodied, perhaps lighter and airier than I was anticipated yet still displaying exquisite balance with an innocuous but charming, light-hearted finish that seems less exuberant than a year ago. I am sure this will gain more volume with bottle age.

    Dark, bright red. Red raspberry, licorice and menthol on the nose, complicated by notes of bitter chocolate and spices. Large-scaled and broad but less forthcoming today than the Chambolle 1er Cru, with dark raspberry, cherry and spice flavors showing a medicinal reserve and a touch of wildness. Shades toward blacker fruits on the dense, sappy back end, which features substantial ripe tannins and strong saline minerality. This very backward, powerful wine will need a long time to fully express itself. - Stephen Tanzer

  • 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.
