Domaine Comte Georges de VOGÜÉ (Chambolle-Musigny) -- 2015 Tasted from Cask

Technical director François Millet said that yields were low due to the June and July dryness in 2015. In August, there was just enough rain, and harvesting began on 3 September. Malolactic fermentations finished in July. 

Although I don’t taste the white wine when I visit (because the volume is so small), in 2015 it appears that the estate will issue it as Musigny once again (the last 20-odd vintages have been declassified to Bourgogne as a result of replanting in the early 1990s; as there is no white wine permitted for the Chambolle-Musigny appellation, if the wine is not labelled Musigny, it must be declassified to Bourgogne).

2015 Chambolle-Musigny
The nose here shows very fresh dark fruits. The mouth is medium-weight and fresh with lots of energy to its blackberry fruit and excellent finesse. (89-93)

2015 Chambolle-Musigny    1er Cru
As usual, this wine is made from Musigny vines less than twenty-five years old. The nose is very deep with dark fruit and minerality. The mouth shows minerality and fresh blackberry fruit with a smooth, velvet texture and medium-weight. One sees clearly the Musigny origin in this wine. (91-94)

2015 Chambolle-Musigny    1er Cru   Les Amoureuses
This should prove to be a great Amoureuses. The wine shows finesse, calm and length with red fruits and minerality showing through. Great depth and length here. (93-97)

2015 Bonnes-Mares
The Bonnes-Mares is another great success here. It is very complex in the nose, and the mouth shows very good concentration to the blackberry/blueberry/black cherry fruits. There some power here but also, calm and length. The wine has great freshness. Those who want a very powerful Bonnes-Mares should understand, though, that de Vogüé’s location at the southeast corner of the vineyard has soils that yield a finer wine than many other Bonnes-Mares. (94-98)

2015 Musigny   Vieilles Vignes
Last is yet another is a string of great Musigny that de Vogüé has produced. As with the Chambolle 1er Cru, there is great depth in the nose here. The mouth, too, shows depth, concentration, and finesses to go with dark fruits that are still very primary. The wine also is notable for its freshness, minerality, and length. All it needs is time to bring everything together. (95-98)
