This is a classic 'cuvée ronde', combining fruit from six different Premiers Crus to produce a stylish example of what Véronique Drouhin calls the 'cashmere of Burgundy'. Scented, balanced and ethereal, it's a transparent expression of Chambolle's range of terroirs, with sweet summer berry flavours and fine, velvety tannins. Accomplished stuff.Drinking Window 2023 - 2032 Tim Atkin - Decanter.com

 Dried-strawberry and black-cherry aromas with hints of dried cherries and orange blossom. It’s full-bodied with round, integrated and fine tannins. Tight and reserved on the finish. Drink after 2023. James Suckling

More evident wood can be found on the spicy poached plum, cassis and violet-suffused nose. The sleek, supple and attractively detailed medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the lingering finish that immediately firms up as it sits on the palate. This is already excellent and potentially outstanding. Sweet Spot – Outstanding – Allen Meadows - Burghound

Dense purple, with a plump nose of dark ripe fruit. Fully ripe, with relatively lush, dark fruit covering the tannins happily. This sample is not singing in the way that this wine often has in other vintages though. Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy

The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru is also promising, exhibiting aromas of rich berry fruit, dark chocolate and creamy new oak. It's medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple, with an ample core of sweet fruit, ripe acids and melting tannins. This sample showed slight signs of fatigue, so I suspect that the final cuvée may make my score seem conservative. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate
