Domain Comte de Vogue : history and quality of wines


The Comte de Vogue domain is one of the few French estates that can boast of having roots going back over 250 years. Indeed, the current directors of this estate, the granddaughters of the late Count George de Vogue, are in their 20th generation. The philosophy of this family of winegrowers is based on a combination of modern and traditional methods of cultivation. Let's take a look at the history of the Comte de Vogue estate and the quality of its wines.

History of the Comte de Vogue estate


The history of this estate dates back to 1450 when Jean Moisson had the original building erected. To this day, there is no record of any transfer of ownership except for the occasional passage through the female line. The name Vogue first appeared at the union of Cerise François Melchior de Vogue and Louise Catherine Bouhier in 1766. Although exiled to England, the family was able to maintain control of the estate during the revolts of the French Revolution. Count Georges de Vogue, as heir, took over the reins of the establishment for some fifty years. The establishment's first heyday was between 1940 and 1960. These were mostly very good years, although in the latter part of the Count's life the vineyards were aggressively treated, leading to less concentrated vintages between 1970 and 1980. Despite this, these wines are still sold at high prices. When he passed away in 1987, his daughter Elisabeth took over the management of the estate with the help of a very high level sales and marketing team. The hiring of oenologist François Millet and Gérald Gaudeau as vineyard manager also began to produce interesting results. The estate has made a wise choice in trying to keep yields lower while creating dense wines with nuance and length through a major replanting operation. Today, the wines of Domain Comte Georges de Vogue can claim the status of the jewel of Burgundy and Côte de Nuits wines, on a par with those of Domaine Leroy, Domaine de la Romanée Conti, etc.

The vineyard of the Domaine Comte de Vogue and the winemaking process


The vineyard of this major Burgundy wine producing estate covers an area of 12 ha. Despite the small size of the vineyard, the wines of the estate have achieved worldwide fame and have become a reference for collectors and wine lovers. The vineyards are divided into 7.25 ha for the Musigny vineyard which constitutes 80% of the total cultivation, 2.75 ha of Bonnes-mares and 1.8 ha of Premier Cru Chambolle-Musigny. The average age of the vines is 35 years. The grape varieties are Pinot Noir (100%) and Chardonnay (100%). The vines are planted on clay and limestone soil. The estate adopts a more or less organic cultivation technique by pruning the vines in guyot and cordon. The harvest and sorting are done by hand. The grapes are destemmed. After the fresh pre-ripening phase, the wines are fermented in a temperature of 32 to 33¨C maximum. Then comes the maceration phase followed by maturation in new oak vats, 15% for the Chambolle village and 35% or a little more for the Grands crus. The estate's products are renowned for their elegant, pure, dense, refined and delicate character.
