- Tasting Notes
This is also pure, elegant and airy with its perfumed array of rose petal, sandalwood, anise and essence of red pinot fruit. There is an ultra-fine mouth feel and plenty of minerality present on the well-delineated flavors that possess fine concentration before culminating in a clean, polished and beautifully well-balanced finale. The presence of so much 1er juice is evident as this is a classic Chambolle of lace and grace. Recommended.

Bright, dark red. Cool scents of dark cherry, licorice and stone. Silky and nicely concentrated but showing little easy sweetness to its youthfully medicinal flavors of cherry and menthol. As there’s less mid-palate flesh here than in the ’15 version, the tannins come across as a bit tight today but the classically dry finish is tactile and persistent. Christophe Perrot-Minot says this wine is closed in the early going owing to its sizable Combe d’Orveau component.

The 2014 Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes contains 30% of Combes d’Orveaux that Christophe used to bottle separately. It has a nose that blossoms with red cherries and blueberry fruit; it is airy in style and quite expressive at this early stage. The palate is smooth and harmonious with well judged acidity, commendable weight in the mouth, but perhaps just needing a little more substance and complexity to come through on the finish. Perhaps afford this a couple of years in bottle? You feel like gee-ing it along.
