Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Chambolle-Musigny 2011

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Chambolle-Musigny 2011

750ML      
Sku: P44167

The de Vogüé villages wine comes mainly from a 1.8 hectares plot in the climat of Les Porlottes, close to the wood on the western side of the village, with a typical production of a little over 400 cases. The soil here covers a bed of limestone and contains many small rocks. The vines have an average age of just under 30 years. The Domaine also owns small sections totaling 0.34 ha in the Chambolle 1er Crus of Les Baudes (average 54 year-old vines) and Les Fuées whose vines average 45 years. Rather than vinify these separately they effectively declassify the resulting 1er Cru wines by choosing to blend into their single villages cuvée.

The 2011 Chambolle-Musigny Village has a fragrant, voluminous bouquet with plush red cherries intermingling with black currant and a touch of cassis. The palate is sweet on the entry with pure black cherry and cassis fruit. The tannins are fine and underpin a linear Chambolle-Musigny: quite conservative in style with sappy black fruit defining the finish. Drink now-2018.
