    Domaine du Comte Georges de Vogüé has 12 hectares under vine including 2.5 hectares (almost 20%) of Bonnes Mares, 0.5 hectares of Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses and 2 hectares of Chambolle-Musigny. The domaine owns an incredible 7.25 hectares of the fabled Le Musigny vineyard which constitutes 80% of the whole site. According to Anthony Hanson, “Musigny comes from an astonishing and fabulous terroir”. The average age of vines in Le Musigny is 40 years old and all is labelled as Vieilles Vignes. The Domaine can trace its history back to 1450 and it is considered by many as the greatest estate in Chambolle Musigny. Today it is the 20th generation of the family that head the domaine; Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, the grand-daughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé who passed away in 1987. The domaine is run by the estate manager Jean-Luc Pépin, winemaker François Millet (who became the wine maker in 1985) and Eric Bourgogne in the vineyards. The domaine is considered amongst the very best in Burgundy, producing rich, perfumed and deliciously complex wines that at their best can age for half a century or more.
