Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé
Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy, France

Many domaines in Burgundy can trace their roots back over 100 years, but only a handful can claim more than 200 years of history, let alone 550 years. Highly regarded as the greatest estate in Chambolle Musigny, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is now headed by its 20th generation – Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, the granddaughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé.

The winemaking approach at Comte de Vogüé is one blending tradition and modernity, with a constant adaptation to both vineyard and vintage conditions as the priority. The current team of François Millet, Eric Bourgogne, and Jean-Luc Pépin has worked tirelessly since 1986 to maintain the impeccable reputation of the domaine, while also leading a critical role in incorporating a philosophy of lutte raisonnée into the domaine’s practices. As such, all vines are currently ploughed, free from exposure to chemical fertilizers, and kept under control by strict pruning. The stated aim is, as much as possible, to tailor vinification to the year and to the particular vineyard or grapes. In winemaker François Millet’s view, getting to know the idiosyncrasies of each patch of vines is a cornerstone of his work. The domaine consists of 31 acres of vineyards - the majority of which is Grand Cru Musigny.

The family also owns a staggering 18 acres of the fabled Le Musigny vineyard and 7 acres of Bonnes-Mares, among other esteemed holdings. The Le Musigny vines are an average of 40 years old and carry the distinction ‘Vieilles Vignes,’ while a Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru created in 1995 is made up entirely of Musigny fruit from the younger vines. François ages only 30 to 40 percent of the grands crus in new oak barrels, a move that emphasizes earth and fruit flavors instead of spicy wood aromas.
