This is a very complex and assertive wine that is so enticingly floral, spicy and fragrant that you can smell earthy notes, as well as sweetly smoky nuances with a full compliment of ripe red cherries and blood-orange zest. The palate has a very plush, very long, deep and powerful style with rich red cherries, framed in effortlessly long, plush and seamlessly ripe tannins. So long, velvety and approachable. It also has the balance and structure to age.

93-95 pts Vinous

The 2017 Musigny Grand Cru was picked on September 8 and includes 40% whole clusters. It has a very intense bouquet of exquisitely defined brambly red fruit, crushed stone and pressed rose petal aromas. With continued aeration there are hints of vervain tea and bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannin. There is a little more density here compared to the Les Amoureuses. White pepper and light sage and saline notes emerge toward the classy finish. Superb... but I have a penchant for the Les Amoureuses this year.

93-95+ pts Wine Advocate

The 2017 Musigny Grand Cru unfurls in the glass with captivating aromas of dried flowers, rose petal, violets and raspberries that mingle with deeper bass notes of espresso roast and raw cocoa. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, satiny and extremely elegant, with terrific depth, concentration and amplitude, framed by rich but powdery tannins and concluding with a beautifully fragrant finish. Unsurprisingly, this is likely the red wine of the vintage chez Drouhin.
