The Musigny is a masterpiece in the making. The nose is bursting with red and dark berris – plenty of millerandage fruit – notes of pomegranate, red currant, blue- and blackberries. On the palate very intense and powerful fruit – below 15 hl per hectare does give a tremendous concentration. The mighty Musigny terroir can however structure and focus even the most intense wines – and with the vibrant 2016 acidity this wine have plenty of backbone – to match the low yield concentration. It’s a big Musigny with a lovely balance .. a wine that will be regarded as a Musigny unicorn and one of the best of the decade. Steen Ohman - Winehog

Tasting note: A restrained and cool and yet perfumed and ultra-spicy array offers up aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and a wide range of floral elements. The concentrated, tautly muscular and tension-filled flavors possess excellent depth of material as well as an abundance of minerality while exhibiting superb persistence on the firm, dusty, youthfully austere and built-to-age finish where a hint of bitter cherry pit appears. This sleek and classy effort will need an extended stay in a cool cellar. In a word, brilliant. Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2016 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru was damaged 70% by the frost: a significant proportion of the entire Grand Cru given that Comte de Vogüé owns most of it. Matured in 30% new oak, it has a broody bouquet that is not as immediate as the Bonnes Mares at the moment, in fact, you would think there is a small amount of stem addition even though there is nary a stem. The word that springs to mind nosing this Musigny is “rocky,” maybe basalt? The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is plenty of blackberry and wild strawberry fruit infused with minerals that segue into a strict and correct finish that leaves you with a persistent stony aftertaste. It is more of a cerebral than sensual Musigny, one that will require eight to ten years in bottle. I was not quite captured by this Musigny but I suspect that it will show better once in bottle. Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate

(production was down between 60% and 70%): Bright ruby-red. Serious, deep scents of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, licorice and menthol convey an old-vines richness. By far the densest, sweetest and most concentrated of this series of 2016s, with dark fruit and licorice flavors lifted by pungent minerality and a piquant note of pomegranate. The least candied and most classic of these '16s, conveying terrific density and depth. Finishes with substantial broad tannins and sneaky rising length. Serious juice! Stephen Tanzer - VM

Their biggest holding – lucky things! Oldest vines planted in 1953 and still in good shape. 35% new oak.
Dark crimson. Immediately more density on the nose even despite very slight reduction. Dark and deeply entrenched flavours. Finishes very majestically. A real assault on the inside of the mouth. Very savoury. Fruit is not the dominant characteristic. More mineral/stones. Not particularly fun to taste now; it’s all long-term potential. Jancis Robinson
