Background information

  • Vogüé makes white wine from chardonnay vines planted at the top of the Musigny vineyard. In 1993 and earlier vintages, the wine is labeled "Musigny Blanc". The vines were ripped up and replanted after the 1993 vintage. Since that time the wine has been declassified and because there is no AOC Chambolle-Musigny blanc, it has to go all the way down the hierarchy to Bourgogne Blanc. Vogüé is currently entitled to release this as a grand cru but did not do so for 22 years.
  • 2015 will be released as Musigny Blanc Grand Cru
