The Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue is inextricably linked to the Grand Cru vineyard of Musigny-in some eyes the pinnacle of Pinot Noir-a wine that should be both complete and profound but never heavy: ’majesty itself’ claims Clive Coates. In 2009 Millet started picking on September 9 in order to keep as much as freshness as possible. The fruit was 100% destemmed. New oak ranged from 15% for the Chambolle villages to 35-40% for the Bonnes Mares and Musigny Vieilles Vignes. The malos were on the slow side and for the most part did not begin until April 2010.
