The 2016 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru was damaged 70% by the frost: a significant proportion of the entire Grand Cru given that Comte de Vogüé owns most of it. Matured in 30% new oak, it has a broody bouquet that is not as immediate as the Bonnes Mares at the moment, in fact, you would think there is a small amount of stem addition even though there is nary a stem. The word that springs to mind nosing this Musigny is “rocky,” maybe basalt? The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is plenty of blackberry and wild strawberry fruit infused with minerals that segue into a strict and correct finish that leaves you with a persistent stony aftertaste. It is more of a cerebral than sensual Musigny, one that will require eight to ten years in bottle. I was not quite captured by this Musigny but I suspect that it will show better once in bottle.

Their biggest holding – lucky things! Oldest vines planted in 1953 and still in good shape. 35% new oak.
Dark crimson. Immediately more density on the nose even despite very slight reduction. Dark and deeply entrenched flavours. Finishes very majestically. A real assault on the inside of the mouth. Very savoury. Fruit is not the dominant characteristic. More mineral/stones. Not particularly fun to taste now; it’s all long-term potential.
