The de Vogüé domaine dates back to the 15th century, even though the name de Vogüé name first entered the Burgundy history in 1766. The domaine have been under the same ownership for 20 generations – that’s very unique even by Burgundy standards – where most domaines have been established after the revolution in 1789.
Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue is situated in the village of Chambolle-Musigny with 12.5 ha of vineyards, of which 9.9 ha is located in the grand cru vineyards Musigny and Bonnes-Mares.
The estate owns some 80 percent of grand cru Le Musigny, and a significant portion of grand cru Bonnes-Mares. A notable characteristic of de Vogüé’s Musigny is that they call it Musigny Vieilles Vignes – “old vines” – and for this wine they used only vines that are 25 years old and more. The average age is usually around 40 years. Vines that are under the age of 25 are down graded to premier cru level.
In 1925 it was inherited by Comte Georges de Vogüé, who ran the domaine for 52 years, and is now owned by his granddaughters, Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette.
