Musigny 1997 Vieilles Vignes, Comte de Vogue Bottle (2)
Just a tiny first effort from the much, much bigger temperature and humidity controlled cellar of a midwestern gentleman. All wines bought on release from reputable retailers.
"A maturing and ultra ripe, indeed almost jammy fruit nose somehow manages to remain elegant and relatively detailed while introducing sappy big-bodied flavors that coat the mouth and buffer the moderately firm tannins on the admirably long finish. This is relatively forward, indeed even precocious for a 13 year old example of this wine and while it's already drinking well, it should offer another 2 to perhaps 5 years of improvement. A solid if not truly special effort for the vintage. Relatively consistent notes." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Feb. 2010)
