"Musigny is one of Burgundy's outstanding crown jewels, on a par with Chambertin. In fact, if forced to state a preference, I would place Musigny ahead of Chambertin - the finest of all grand crus excepting perhaps some of the monopoles of Vosne-Romanee." says Jasper Morris in Inside Burgundy.
 
In 1110AD the monks of Citeaux received land in Musigny. Unlike other Burgundy crus the land was not taken over by a single owner nor was it enclosed within walls like Vougeot. 
 
Today, the Grand Cru Musigny measures 10.85 hectares. With an enormous holding of 7.12 hectares it is no wonder Comte Georges de Vogue is the best known maker of this magnificent vineyard. The domaine dates back to 1450 when Jean Moisson constructed the first building. It passed through the female line until 1766 when Catherine Bouhier married Cerice-Melchior de Vogue.
Unlike many prestigious vineyards, the family managed to retain control of Musigny through the French Revolution.  The domaine is now in the hands of the granddaughters of Georges de Vogue and the wine is made by the serious Francois Millet.
 
Musigny, particularly from de Vogue, is a wine that requires time to express itself. At this dinner we taste ten consecutive vintages of de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes from 1999 to 2008. At between 8 and 17 years of age we will see the development of the wine, as well obtaining a picture of intage variation in Burgundy.
 
Before the reds we will taste two vintages of de Vogue Bourgogne Blanc. De Vogue is the only maker with a Grand Cru vineyard white in the Cote de Nuits. However, the vines are young as the vineyard was uprooted in 1986 and the domaine has decided to label the wine as Bourgogne until the vines reach an acceptable age.
 
This is an amazing lineup of Grand Cru Burgundy for one evening. I expect demand will far outstrip the limited number of seats we have available.

Gevrey Grand Cru Dinner Header
 
The Grand Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin Dinner at Woodland House. Tuesday 1 March 2016
A journey through the GRAND CRU vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin.
Gevrey-Chambertin boasts nine Grand Crus, all of which are Red only. The vineyards are almost evenly spread on either side of the Route des Grand Crus at between 260 and 300 metres above sea level.
 
As is the case right through Burgundy each vineyard has its own style and character and this dinner aims to unravel the differences and similarities between the complete array of nine Grand Crus.
 
Once again we have assembled a selection of wines all with some bottle age from nine different and respected producers. And the vintages selected are certainly serious.
 
The dinner presents a great opportunity to taste some very highly regarded wines and compare them to their peers. We will provide tasting and vineyard information to help explain just why these wines, frequently located next door to each other, can taste so different.
 
With the range of vintages being served the dinner will also show how the Grand Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin develop over the time. It is a terrific opportunity to learn more about this commune of Burgundy.
 
This dinner will in the lovely Riedel Room at Woodland House.
Date: Tuesday 1 March 2016
Time: 7pm
Venue: Woodland House, 
78 Williams Road, 
Prahran Vic 3181
Cost: $489.00 per person
