Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
94 JM / 92 BH
The vineyard is at the northern end of the commune, just north of Chambolle-Musigny village itself. It covers a three-hectare (seven-acre) plot of land at the very base of the Côte d'Or escarpment.
Anne loves this terroir, rich and generous, with 45 year old vines. There are some whole bunches here for the first time, 20%, given the plumper nature of this terroir, and that adds a lovely little tingle which stretches out the finish. Very dainty red fruits. This is not a well-known Chambolle premier cru but on this showing it deserves greater fame! Tasted: April 2021—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
Tasting note: A ripe, spicy and beautifully layered nose speaks of liqueur-like aromas of cassis, violet and essence of dark cherry. The rich, even opulent, larger-scaled flavors manage to retain good refinement on the palate soaking, sappy and impressively persistent finish. Good stuff that should repay mid-term cellaring. Outstanding. –Allen Meadows, Burghound
