About Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue

With over 500 years of history, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue is a revered Burgundy estate, especially renowned for its superior Pinot Noir. Anchoring its prestige in Chambolle-Musigny, the estate's consistency in creating high-quality, elegant wines is truly impressive.

The estate owns prestigious Grand Cru vineyards including, Musigny, Bonnes-Mares, and others. Notably, it possesses a majority, around 70%, of the revered Musigny vineyard, an unusual feat among Burgundy estates.

The estate's wines are celebrated for their depth and texture. The Pinot Noirs are known for their smoothness and opulence, while the limited Musigny Blanc adds an elegant touch. The Bonnes-Mares wines are appreciated for their richness and structure, offering a delightful contrast to the traditional Musigny wines' vibrant sophistication.

Though not officially organic, the estate promotes biodiversity with methods like horse plowing and using organic compost. The winemaking process, led by François Millet, depends on vintage conditions and fruit maturity rather than a fixed formula. He favors natural yeasts, minimum sulfur, and mostly destemmed fermentation in large wooden vats. Maturation involves 15% new French oak for village wines and up to 35% for grand crus, ensuring the terroir's prominence. The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered, preserving authenticity.

Offering a unique exploration of Burgundy's soul, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue's wines encapsulate exceptional terroir and meticulous craftsmanship, earning their place in any discerning wine collection.
