Musigny Vieilles Vignes Comte Georges de Vogue 2005 (1.5L)
98+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bright, dark, saturated red-ruby. Pungent, noble aromas and flavors of raspberry, flowers, white pepper and powdered stone. Enters the palate with a wonderful lightness, then mounts impressively toward the back and saturates the entire mouth with fruits, spices, minerals and earth. As flamboyantly sweet as this wine is today, it's most remarkable for its power, definition, energy and cut. The tannins are still a bit youthfully spiky but this extremely backward wine finishes with superb thrust, grip and persistence. It's hard to imagine that this wine won't gain in texture and complexity over the next 20 to 30 years of aging in a cold cellar." 3/08
98 Points, Burghound: "Ten years of age seems to have had almost zero effect on this monument of a wine that is remains robust, powerful, intense and clearly built to age for decades to come. Indeed so little has changed that I repeat my original note here: A positively brilliant nose of violet and rose petal shines against a background of intensely spiced extravagant red and black pinot fruit nuanced by hints of earth and stone and this minerality continues onto the surprisingly supple flavors that convey a remarkable sense of energy and power on the almost unbelievably intense, focused and structured finish that seems to go on and on without end. And the '05 VV has what all truly great burgundies have which is that extra dimension of power without weight as this carries terrific punch and power yet delivers that explosiveness with impeccable class and grace. Note that unlike the '05 Bonnes Mares that is also very much a baby but could actually be enjoyed, there is zero (and I really do mean zero) point in opening a bottle of the '05 Musigny VV today as it remains tight as a drum. Tasted on several occasions recently and in short, this is genuinely fantastic." 4/16
