- Closure: Cork
Iris, peony, heliotrope, black tea, ginseng, red raspberry, pomegranate, chalk dust, and striking if illusive mineral savor suggestive of lobster shell reduction team up for a de Vogue 2008 Musigny Vieilles Vignes of dizzying aromatic complexity as well as formidable depth and intrigue. In winemaker Francois Millet’s terms, “we have here both the subjective (i.e. metaphorical) minerality, and the proper minerality, meaning the powdery trace of limestone.” Whether or not you accept the latter claim, it’s pretty hard to argue with the riveting, kaleidoscopic complexity of this finely-tannic, at once silken and refreshing, intensely-fruited, floral, and – yes – “mineral” Musigny. I would expect this to be worth following for 15 or more years. Incidentally, even at this top end of their line-up and with a wine of such strong personality, the team here employed only one-third new barrels, just as they did for their other 2008s.
