Unicorn Spotting… Comte Georges de Vogue Bourgogne Blanc 2011

Last produced as a Musigny Grand Cru Blanc in 1993, Comtes Georges de Vogue replanted the last portion of their 0.6 Ha of Musigny Chardonnay in 1997.

Determined not to bottle another Musigny Blanc again until the vines were at least 20-25 years old, the domaine has produced this ultra rare, uber priced Bourgogne Blanc in the meantime.

Indications are that the 2017 might be considered for the Musigny Blanc Grand Cru label. But the decision will be based strictly on wine quality. No more than 2,500 bottles will be produced. A true rarity.

Tasting Note: A big beast of a wine – Vogue Musigny Blanc 2011. Honied, exotic leesy apricots, caramel biscuits, lemon curd and spicy, pithy, baked green apples. Intense fruits, fathomless depth, beautiful intense framing acids. An almost overwhelming wine. (Wine Safari Score: 95+/100 Greg Sherwood MW)
