Captures the gist of northern NSG without a hefty price point. Tardy’s 80 year old vine in the lieu dit do not hurt either. Silken tannin, pure and lovely black cherry fruit, hints of the exotic like licorice root and stat anise, plenty of forest notes like sous bois, damp fern, and cedar. I think they matched the cooperage well here, its supportive of this more compact and acid driven vintage. Over a couple days it has held well and been pleasurable. — 6 days ago
2015. First time around with this producer. Loads of power right out of the gate. Nose packs a big aromatic punch with spiced bing cherries & mushroom/earthiness. The palate is rich dark fruit with ripe, grippy tannins. Acid is behind everything else at this point. The mid palate shows fantastic spicy notes that linger through the finish. Paired with the grippy texture, this shows great complexity for such a young wine. — 17 days ago
Dark crimson tawny. Regal looking. Exotic nose. Notes of bing cherry, raspberries, iron, menthol, roses and a little camphor. Quiet in the mouth at open, gave it 4 hours in the decanter and the structure powered up. Silky wine with amazing perfume. My first taste of the 93 and it’s perhaps the best Vogue Musigny I’ve ever had. Still young in its journey Give it a lot of air if opening now, but it’s easily got a few decades in front of it yet. This is the real deal! — 7 days ago
WNH virtual tasting - great fun!
This presented in a somewhat idiosyncratic way. The nose displayed apples, pears and a touch of caramel. But the palate was like a chameleon - first, you noticed the typical Chardonnay signature, but it also displayed some SB like (sherbet) notes. A rare white from NSG, as this village, for the most part, produces reds. Medium weight and texture, with a balanced acid profile. Finishes with a flinty note. I’m sure that this wine would have baffled most in a blind tasting, including moi. — 5 days ago
2012. The nose is simply evolving in the most beautiful ways. Very straightforward red cherries on opening, but with air & through dinner we get smoke and anise notes adding layers to that fruit. The palate has plenty of savory/earthy power with that spicy/anise note adding gorgeous complexity. The balance comes with a racy raspberry note towards the finish and plenty of grip on the end. Excellent. — 20 days ago
