Description

This seems to be generally regarded as one of the very best examples of de Vogue's Musigny:

BurgHound:
One of the finest wines of the vintage, this is simply a spectacular effort that has captured every bit of the potential it originally displayed in cask. Restrained and backward nose of a fantastically complex mix of blackberries, spice, cedar, soy, anise and dried herbs followed by full-bodied, multi-layered flavors of amazing length. Opulent and lavish yet all remains exquisitely balanced and this is astonishingly precise. A real stunner of a wine that is as classy and graceful as they come. As good and classy as the '02 if not quite as structured.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, March/April 2004, Issue #113
(Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny) ($275) Deep red. Deep, reserved but thoroughly ripe nose hints at blueberry, cherry, blood orange, spices and minerals. Wonderfully sweet and silky but with a firm mineral spine giving shape and grip to the flavors. Extremely precise, classy, young Musigny, finishing with strong, broad, thoroughly ripe tannins and superb sweetness. Millet then told me this wine had been aerated for an hour before we tasted it from a decanter; he opened a new bottle and the second sample was even sweeter, more pliant and longer. The decanted bottle was distinctly closed by comparison. 95(+?) points


Wine Advocate, Pierre Rovani, June 2003:
Sumptuous aromas of violets, blackberries, and bilberries explode from the medium to dark ruby-colored 2001 Musigny. A wine of amazing purity and elegance, it reverberates on the palate revealing broad layers of floral dark fruit flavors. Lush yet superbly delineated, this medium-bodied effort is expressive, complex, and dignified. Its prolonged, succulent finish exhibits waves of raspberry fruit and loads of ripe, supple tannin. One of the stars of the vintage, it will be at its peak of maturity between 2006 and 2015. According to Francois Millet, this famed estate’s highly talented winemaker, 2001 was a vintage that wished to produce high yields. “We dropped half the fruit before veraison (when the grapes change color), yet harvested 35 hectoliters per hectare, a high yield for this domaine.” Burgundy’s resident poet, Millet stated that “2001's fruit is its sensuality, the acidity is its conscience and soul.” While my pragmatic mind is incapable of understanding the meaning of his words, it is clear that Millet fashioned some of the finest red Burgundies produced in 2001.
