A Vancouver-based cellar who purchased all wines on release from trusted importers/agents. Wines were stored professionally from the time of purchase. Looking to pair down his cellar, Iron Gate is delighted to bring these wines to auction.
The wine in this lot has a score of 95 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -Served blind, the 2013 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru from Comte de Vogüé wore its pedigree on its sleeve, opening in the glass with a superb bouquet of wild strawberries, rose, cherry, blood orange and plum—much like it did in barrel. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and layered, with succulent acids, a deep mid-palate and a sapid, mineral-laden finish. Pure and transparent, this is a beautifully elegant Musigny that should be comparatively approachable in another 5 or 6 years. As Chambolle’s church clock chimed nine, I opened the door to winemaker François Millet’s office. I think he was quietly impressed by my punctuality. Together we trooped down to his cellar to taste through the 2013s and also the bottled 2012s, the latter destined for a future report. Millet’s oratory is always one of the philosophical highlights of my visits. He could do a TED talk on winemaking. “There was a lot of coulure and flowering took a long time,” he began, “The old vines had a lot of millerandage. The summer was good, but September had a sub-tropical climate and with storms and botrytis forthcoming we decided not to wait. So we picked on 5 October and it was in 1987 that we last picked in that month. We finished the harvest on 13 October. I like the freshness and mineralité of the vintage. There is very nice skin ripeness. The color is nothing to do with more extraction
