VM95-97: The 2021 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru underwent a picked piecemeal from the 30 different plots to find the best order that actually was linked to vine age. It has a gorgeous bouquet with brambly red fruit, loam, blood oranges and subtle graphite aromas. Superb delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins, fresh citrus like acidity, tensile and focused. This is a very classic, mineral-driven Musigny with surfeit of salinity that gets the saliva flowing on the finish. So bright on the finish.
WA92-94: Exhibiting notes of sweet berries and cherries mingled with notions of rose petals, musk, blood orange and spices, the 2021 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is medium to full-bodied, satiny and perfumed, with excellent concentration, lively acid and sweet, supple tannins. Impressively sensual and effortless, it represents a very strong start for Jean Lupatelli, the estate's new régisseur.
