Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Bonnes-Mares 1990

Out of stock

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

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

Footnotes on Futures, Pre-Arrivals, and potential US Tariffs: 

1. As of June 15, 2021, the US and the EU agreed to suspend tariffs resulting from the Boeing-Airbus aircraft trade disputes. Accordingly, such import taxes are now suspended for the next five years.

2. Futures are expected to be available for delivery two years after the sales (e.g., the 2022 vintage, sold in 2023, will be delivered in 2025 mostly, or 2026 if the producer ages the wine longer).

3. Pre-Arrivals are items currently stored in our Bordeaux cellar or in transit from France to the US. It usually takes 1-6 months for Pre-Arrivals to become available for delivery, depending on the stage of the import process.

4. Regarding futures and pre-arrivals, we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates, which factors beyond our control may impact. However, we will notify you once your wine arrives in our cellar.

5. While a buyer of Bordeaux wine futures locks in an allocation of the specified items, the final delivery of the purchased items from France to the US may be impacted by intervening and unforeseeable events. Despite our due diligence, additional costs or delays may be caused by such intervening and unforeseen events and "an irresistible, superhuman cause, or by the act of public enemies of the state of California or the United States."  In such circumstances, if a buyer does not accept unforeseeable costs or delays, the sole and exclusive remedy is a cancellation of the futures order concerned and a refund of the original purchase price. We are NOT liable for any lost profits on a canceled order.
