Over the field of inheritance fell into a great house wine Nuits-Saint-Georges. In 1978, the family took over the operation of vineyards. In 2004, the area increased from 4 to 14 hectares by the end of the tenancy of the Clos de la Maréchale.
Le Musigny like its neighbor Les Amoureuses, is very elegant, very rich, but not heavy. The aromatic palette is close to Les Amoureuses but this wine has exceptional depth and intensity, with a very nice finish on the palate.
The estate usually produces between 2000 and 5000 bottles of this Grand Cru, from a plot of 1.14 ha, exclusively from old vines. It is a great aging wine, which needs to be kept several years in the cellar its aromas. This 2011 vintage offers a very wide range of aromas : spices, red and black fruit, violets, and a long lasting finish.
