Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Musigny Blanc
DESCRIPTION: Beginning with the 2015 Vintage it is again called Musigny Blanc
- It is the location that is classed as Grand Cru, so red or white (assuming the AOC is in place), if the grapes come from Musigny the resulting wine is entitled to the Musigny label.
- Robert Parker (Burgundy, 1990) wrote that the Chardonnay vines of Musigny were “planted at the request of the late Comtesse de Vogüé”; at the domaine today there is no direct evidence of that, or an exact planting date, but what is sure is that there was definitely a white Musigny produced as early as the 1930’s, so the Comtesse would have been quite young.
GRAPE VARIETY: Chardonnay
FOOD PAIRINGS: Like all great white wines, this Musigny Blanc deserves to accompany the best fish and shell fish dishes, such as lobster or crabmeat in a light wine sauce, salmon, trout or Dover sole simply grilled or poached. The wine should be served no colder than 13°C (57°F).
TASTING NOTES: Pale gold. A waxy nose with subtle, cream-covered, pineapple. The nose slowly evolves a faint butterscotch edge. The density and balance when coupled with the acidity is rather good. It’s not entirely subtle but there is more than a hint of refinement. There’s even a lingering creamy edge to the nut-infused finish.
