About The Wine
Prophet's Rock owner Paul Pujol has a long standing relationship with iconic Chambolle Musigny vigneron, Francois Millet of Domaine Georges Comte de Vogue.
Francois has made the Antipodes Pinot Noir alongside Pujol for several vintages now. Here comes a Chardonnay made to his own exacting Burgundian standards. The lone Chardonnay in the Comte de Vogue range is a rare-as-hens-teeth Musigny Blanc from only 0.66 hectares planted in the Grand Cru. If you ever see a bottle, do whatever you can to taste it - it's one of those mythic unicorn wines that apparently is mind-blowing yet no one has ever tasted it.
This is a rare opportunity to taste a Chardonnay by the hand of Millet. It's a powerful, opulent style made in a Burgundian vain. It's an outstanding example from Central Otago and likely one of the finest Chardonnays you will taste from the region.
About Prophet's Rock
The Prophet's Rock project was founded in 1999.
The man behind the wines, Paul Pujol, has an enviable resume, having made wine all around the world.
After working his way through the French regions of Languedoc and Sancerre, he was perhaps the first foreign winemaker ever to be invited to head up an Alsatian winery, Kuentz-Bas where he made their six Grand Cru wines for three years. He also spent a formative vintage at Chambolle-Musigny in Burgundy which set the tone for his winemaking style under his own label.
The wines of Prophet's Rock come from two vineyards, the Home Block and the Rocky Point vineyard. Paul's mission is to let these vineyards speak for themselves.
