Last chance. A Selection of aged de Vogue Burgundy from a Private Cellar

Aged de Vogue for your cellar 

"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.

Coste-Caumartin Boucherottes label
The Spectacular Domaine Coste-Caumartin Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Boucherottes Monopole 2016
Arriving next month
This was the most exciting new discovery of my trip to Burgundy earlier this year. It is a stunning wine! The label says Premier Cru but I think the quality is certainly Grand Cru.
 
Gilbert & Gaillard: A garnet color with ruby highlights. Racy nose, floral presence with greedy Morello cherry. The palate seduces by its scale, its elegance, its fullness. One praises to the skies for its fruit, its floral dimension, its generous tannic finish. A 2016 with an entire character. 96 Points
Darren Harris: Deep purple-red. Intense nose of cool black fruits - mostly cherries - and huge minerality. Refined and cool. Tight, very tight. The super low cropping adds layer upon layer on a textured palate culminating in an amazing peacock's tail and a very long stony finish.The silky tannins are extremely fine and coated by the velvety fruit.The domaine sets out to make this wine as a Grand Cru with extremely low cropping and beautiful handling. They succeed admirably. I don't think I have ever tasted a Pommard quite like this. It reminds me of a theoretical blend of Corton Clos du Roi, Clos Vougeot and Clos de la Roche with each coming to the fore as the wine sits in the glass. It is a sensual wine and is very special indeed. Forget your pre-conceived idea of Pommard. This is a super wine of Grand Cru quality.
