Details

The name De Vogüé is linked to Burgundy since 1766 when the name of the family appears for the first time on the noble registers of the time; since then, ten generations have succeeded in running the Domaine De Vogüé. Currently the management is entrusted to the oenologist François Millet, to Eric Bourgogne, responsible for the vineyards, and Jean-Luc Pépin, responsible for the commercial part. The wine heritage consists of 12.40 hectares, all located in the municipality of Chambolle-Musigny; the plants are very old, with the exception of the rows of Chardonnay planted in the Grand Cru Musigny which are "only" 30 years old. In the vineyard the land is plowed regularly, systematic treatments and chemical fertilizers are banned; if deemed necessary, in particular years, the vendange verte is carried out. By choice, the Domaine Comte Georges De Vogüé, is among the first producers of all Chambolle-Musigny to harvest, the reason is the pursuit of elegance and freshness. In the cellar the vinification operations, conducted by François Millet, provide fully de-stemmed and fermented grapes in wooden containers, the latter activated by indigenous yeasts alone. The temperatures are controlled, without ever exceeding 34 °, the pigeagè are made regularly but only in fair quantities: François Millet believes that this excessively repeated operation is poorly digested by the wines of Chambolle-Musigny. After fermentation, the wines are aged Allier wood, 15% new for the Village, 25% for the Premier Cru and 35-40% for the Grand Cru. After malolactic fermentation, the wines rest for 18 months. The wines are extremely elegant and refined, able to evolve like few others and become sensual and seductive.
