Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is one of the most prominent estates in Burgundy, and the Musigny Vieilles Vignes is one of the most legendary wines produced in the region.
While de Vogüé also is the largest owner of Bonnes Mares this wine seems strangely overlooked, although it’s in my view is one of the very best wines produced from this vineyard.
The Bonnes Mares from Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé deserves more credit and attention … so let’s take a trip to the southern end of Bonnes Mares.
