It was a long hard week, so why not indulge a little?

1978 Daniel Moine-Hudelot, Musigny
Medium mahogany colour. The nose is full but round, a deep core of baked fruit coated with herbs, the fruit just gets fresher and fresher, eventually having a distinct rose-petal aroma. Silky but still a lick of bitter tannin waits in the mid-palate. There’s a lot of fruit here and it’s a big wine in the mid-palate. Good finish. Rather primary to start with, but if you’d been told blind it was from the 90s you’d believe it. Not a life-changing Musigny, but impressive given no lack of power and such a youthful display and, okay, perhaps maybe just a little beguiling.
Rebuy – No Chance

Domaine Moine-Hudelot was sold off in 2008 to Patrick Landanger of Domaine Pouse d’Or when Daniel Moine, former mayor of Chambolle-Musigny retired. The Musigny vines, however, were split (as far as I know) between domaines Leroy and Drouhin-Laroze.

    Hi,
    I was able to buy 7 bottles of Musigny 78 from Moine-Hudelot.
    I have tasted this wine in januari 2010 in a nice tasting of “old” bourgognes. We rated im 94 and he was second after Henri Jayer’s Echezeaux 82

      Hi Mommerency
      Thanks for that info – I had only the bottle I’m afraid, but it was very good too. Your score is not so bad – I said mine wasn’t life-changing – maybe I need 95 for that πŸ™‚

    Bill, do you know happened to Moine-Hudelot’s Clos Vougeot? Was it sold to yet another Domaine?
