• Domaine: Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé
• Appellation: Bonnes-Mares 
• Classification: Grand Cru
• Origin: Côte de Nuits, Côte-d’Or, Burgundy (Bourgogne), France
• Importer: Laguna Cellar

The domaine owns a block of vines accounting for 2.7 hectares and an average production of approximately 420 cases per year.  The vines are located entirely in the Chambolle portion of the vineyard that is closest to the village itself.  This provides for a slightly more elegant Bonnes-Mares, but one that is heavily scented with violet and peony.

Tasting Notes

"Full colour: A great deal of depth and concentration on the nose.  Rich, oaky and very promising indeed. Full body.  Splendidly rich and concentrated.  Marvelous expression of fruit.  Still very youthful.  Ready, but better still in 5 years.  This is quite splendid.  Very impressive finish." - Clive Coates, author of the The Wines of Burgundy (October, 2005), Rating: 19.5/20

"While the Bonnes Mares is closed, the dark ruby/purple color and the wine's terrific potential are evident. Full-bodied, with a blossoming, black-cherry nose complemented by a judicious use of toasty new oak, this wine exhibits wonderful richness, excellent definition and structure, and a long, dense, concentrated finish. Anticipated maturity: 1997-2010. After a wait of nearly twenty years, these 1990s are the first truly profound wines to emerge from this great domaine since 1972. If the rigid oenologist who fashions these wines, Monsieur Millet, would throw away his filters, they probably could have been even more exciting. However, these 1990s are stunning enough to convince me that the resurrection of Comte de Vogue has begun. Interestingly, Millet has shown some flexibility and is now doing a cold maceration of 5-7 days before starting the fermentation, which has no doubt contributed to the black/purple color of these wines." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (10/22/1992, Issue 83), Rating: 90
