The colour of the Musigny is a delicate and deep magenta purple with wild rose, violet, blackcurrant and raspberry on the nose. With age come odours of leather and cherry spirit. Its almost caramelized grapes and aromas of open flowers embalm the palate with a texture of voluptuous taffetas. Its length leads us towards the endless complexity of its aromas.
"It may not possess the powerful splendour of a Chambertin or the silky and meaty calibre of a Romanée, but what sumptuous colour, what exceptional elegance, what richness of body and bouquet with blackcurrant, wild rose and raspberry fragrances. Camille Rodier.
