Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny

TASTING NOTES: Medium cherry-red; fades to salmon pink at the edge. The nose shows powdery, pure red fruit. The palate gives a very fresh expression; medium length but quite lacy and très elegant. The fine tannins give a little bite on the finish but this is a lovely, pure and elegant, rather than powerful, example of Chambolle.

Description

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny

 

DESCRIPTION:

  • The de Vogüé villages wine comes mainly from a 1.8 hectares plot in the climate 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.

GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir

FOOD PAIRINGS: Pinot Noir is well-suited to pair with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamb and pork. It will play well with creamy sauces, spicy seasonings and may just be one of the world’s most versatile food wines.

TASTING NOTES: Medium cherry-red; fades to salmon pink at the edge. The nose shows powdery, pure red fruit. The palate gives a very fresh expression; medium length but quite lacy and très elegant. The fine tannins give a little bite on the finish but this is a lovely, pure and elegant, rather than powerful, example of Chambolle.
