Brilliant dark crimson. Light gaminess as a top note on real majesty. Polished and very fresh. Sort of struggling not to show off its obvious fruit and to reserve lots of serious stuff. This will make fabulous old bones but there is masses buried underneath. Amazing length.
Anticipated maturity: 2035-2060
The 2015 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has an iridescent purple hue. The showy, very pure, almost glossy bouquet features copious blueberry and black cherry fruit infused with pressed violet petals, all beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, rounded and fleshy in style, perhaps with less structure than Mugnier’s Musigny, but certainly very long, with a tang of blood orange toward the finish. Primal and currently lacking cohesion, this just needs time. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
