96 Points Wine Advocate
The 2014 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru had to be warmed up in my warm hands, since the wine had closed down a little in recent days. It has a very composed and quite dense bouquet with wild strawberry and blueberry scents, more opulence coming through with time, red rose. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a subtle marine influence flowing under the surface of red cherry and wild strawberry notes, an almost confit-like finish that feels dense and with plenty of substance. This is a sophisticated, almost saturnine Musigny -- a Pandora's Box of secrets that will only be revealed with age.
96 Points View from the Cellar
I was very happy to find that the Musigny had not yet been racked at the time of my visit, as it is nice to see at least one wine that is totally on form, so that it makes it far easier to get a proper read on the wines that have been recently racked. In contrast to the recently racked wines, the tug of great minerality can really be felt in the Musigny, as the wine offers up a gloriously complex bouquet of red and black cherries, plums, pomegranate, a very complex base of soil tones, violets, roses, fresh herbs and a gentle base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very energetic, with a sappy core, classic transparency and mineral drive, fine-grained tannins and lovely focus and grip on the long and perfectly balanced finish.
