Has anybody ever heard of a wine called "Musygny"? I've only seen 1 bottle in my lifetime (I'm only 31..), it was from 1969. I have found out that it was made from 1964-1978 (MUSYGNY CONTE GEORGES DE VOGUE' -DEGLI ANNI - FROM YEARS: 1964-1978). I have a very special friend who loves this wine and I'd love to get him a bottle of it for Christmas. Any tips on where I could find out more about it?

Hi David and welcome to the board. The burgandy you're looking for is a fine bottle and can be ordered from Pops or any other fine wine shop. WW

Howdy WinoWeenie, thanks for your reply . I went over to popswines.com and typed in "Musygny" and got nothing..Then I typed in "Musigny" and got 6 different varieties (4 were already 'sold out'). The two that remained were vintage 1998 & 1999. I think the Musygny my friend had was Italian (I could be wrong), the one on the website looks to be French. I'm not sure if the spelling alone means that it's a different wine, but do doubt that it's the same thing he had back in the good ol' days. The bottle he had was vintage 1969. Also, I went down to Spec's (Houston, Texas) and they had a bottle vintage 1973 going for about $300. I have read good thing about the "Musigny" being a really good wine, I might go ahead and order a couple of bottles from popswines.com and try 'em out. Thanks for the info..

I don't know of an italian wine called musygny...and if WW doesn't know it, my guess is that it doesn't exist.

Musigny, as our esteemed WW told you, is a French white Burgundy...and a mighty fine one at that. You can't really go wrong buying such a bottle...

The next time I go over to my buddy's house, I'm borrowing the label (he keeps the label of each wine he drinks - has so for the past 50+ years) and will scan it and post it up here to prove that it does indeed exist [img]http://www.wines.com/ubb2/smile.gif[/img]

Some more info
Domaine Comte Georges De Vogue
France
Few estates in Burgundy have origins that date back as far as Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue, located in the heart of Chambolle-Musigny.
The twelve and a half hectare Domaine (31 acres), one of the oldest in Burgundy, has remained in the hands of the same family, through inheritance and marriage to the present day.

The philosophy of the Domaine can be summarized as "an alliance between man and nature", allowing the terrior to express itself through the wines. The limestone and clay soils have a great influence on the elegant and refined structure of the wines of Chambolle and impart an aromatic character, which is unique to Burgundy.

Thanks, that looks familiar, but I distinctly remember his label being white with gold letters. I'm going over this weekend, so I'll scan it.

David, I can assure you the the Comtes de Vogue is French and as mentioned earlier he's a fine producer of both white and red Burgandies (and 'spensive). WW


- David Cantu - 12-06-2001 08:06 PM

Me be lookin' for a bottle of the really 'spensive stuff. Like I told one of the respondees, I saw a bottle of a 1973 vintage down at Houston's (Texas) "Speck's" Store with a price tag of $298 + tax.

DAVID.....PASS ON THE 73 AT 23.00 EVEN. Bad vintage that has long since passed on to the " salad dressing in the sky" WW


- David Cantu - 12-07-2001 10:00 AM

I'll heed your advice oh great WinoWeenie. I'm still learning..The newer vintages seem to be getting rave reviews, are they worth $89.99 a bottle?
