Domaine Comte Georges de Voguë 2000 Le Musigny Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $300
This is great red Burgundy from the oldest domaine in the village. It is all there: powerful floral aromas, flavors of a coulis of black fruits, ripe tannins and sweet fruit with balancing acidity. The wine manages to combine a deep, almost brooding strength with a dense, silky texture. For a 2000, a lesser year than 1999, this is a great achievement. Keep for at…  — R.V.  (11/1/2002)

Domaine Jacques Prieur 2009 Musigny Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $510
A sumptuous wine, rich in bright red fruits, with a structure and depth of flavor to match. The wine is gorgeously ripe, opening its heart quickly. Acidity, bitter chocolate and dark cherries go with the tannic core to promise long aging.  — R.V.  (9/1/2011)

Joseph Drouhin 2006 Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $380
For many, this vineyard offers the purest form of Pinot Noir, a seductive, opulent style, with rich fruits dominant, the powerful acidity deceptively sweet. Add to this a tight, firm, smoke-and-toast tannic structure, and this is not only a fine wine now, but one with long-term potential. Keep for at least six years.  — R.V.  (10/1/2009)

Joseph Drouhin 2004 Musigny Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $242
As befits the most seductive of vineyards, this wine is one that wraps itself around you, a charmer of a wine, but one that still retains some of the elegance of a great Chambolle-Musigny. And just when you think it’s all up front, the tannins creep up and promise great aging potential.  — R.V.  (3/1/2007)

Joseph Drouhin 2000 Le Musigny Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $139
Enticing ripe fruits envelop this wine in a rich cloak of red fruit, chocolate and spices. The tannins are deceptively easy, but provide considerable power underneath the elegant fruit. At this stage, the wine is still very young, but there are plenty for indications of a rich, long-term future.  — R.V.  (11/1/2002)

Domaine Georges Roumier 2000 Le Musigny Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $200
An immediately attractive wine, with aromas of summer flowers and orange zest. Soft, sweet fruits and ripeness underline the delicious pure fruit flavors. The structure is dense but fine, the essence of a seductive Pinot Noir.  — R.V.  (11/1/2002)

Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier 1999 Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $179
Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, whose family owns the Château de Chambolle, has made a huge, deeply colored wine with aromas of roses and truffles. To taste, it is rich, opulent and oozing fruit, with generous tannins and fresh acidity coming together in fine balance. It has all the seductive character of Musigny.  — R.V.  (11/1/2002)

Domaine Jacques Prieur & Antonin Rodet 2000 Pinot Noir (Musigny)

  1. $175
A glance at the beautiful purple-blue robe and a whiff of the silky, seductive nose, and you know you have arrived in the promised land of “true” Burgundy. Young, tangy and tasting almost like a barrel sample, it nonetheless displays both power and finesse in a tight, textured, sculpted package. An earthy, roasted component lengthens the finish.  — P.G.  (11/1/2002)
