View from the CellarThe bottling of young vine Musigny is going to be superb in 2014, as the wine shows the vintage’s beautiful combination of sappy pure fruit and great transparency. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a perfumed constellation of red and black cherries, plums, bitter chocolate, a touch of marjoram, a fine base of soil, a dollop of vanillin oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy from start to finish, with lovely mid-palate concentration, fine-grained tannins and a long, potentially very velvety finish. Lovely juice. Issue#60, 12/15" 92-93
BurghoundThe intensely floral-suffused nose reveals notes of lavender, rose petal and lilac along with plenty of spice elements on the mostly dark berry fruit aromas. There is notably more volume to the equally pure medium weight plus flavors that positively vibrate with energy and minerality before culminating in a harmonious and beautifully well-balanced finale. This marvelously complex effort really builds from the mid-palate as the finish is sneaky long.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru has a very classic bouquet, leaning more towards black fruit here, touches of slate and flint in the background, blackberry and raspberry preserve gaining intensity in the glass. There is less of the undergrowth scents that I noticed out of barrel. The palate is smooth and silky, perhaps a little more sorbet-like in character à la 2015, gently building to quite a sweet, candied orange peel and Asian spice tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is showing great promise. Tasted November 2016. Drink Date: 2020-2038.
