Musigny - 2017 - Domaine de la Vougeraie
A discreet touch of oak frames the intensely floral and exotically spiced nose reluctantly gives up its aromas of black cherry. The powerful, dense and imposingly-scaled flavors brim with both minerality and sappy dry extract that buffers the powerful, mouth coating and very firm tannic spine shaping the gorgeously long finish. This is a seriously impressive Musigny though one that is clearly meant for extended keeping.
Score: 94/96 Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (73), January 2019
