- Tasting Notes
The nose is more deeply pitched still with its dark currant liqueur-like aromas that are liberally laced with notes of anise, clove, dried tangerine peel and lavender. There is excellent volume and complexity to the wonderfully refined medium-bodied flavors thanks to the dense but very fine-grained tannins that also shape the impressively persistent, harmonious and lingering finish. This will certainly be capable of rewarding longer-term cellaring yet be approachable after only 6 years or so of bottle age.

The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny les Charmes 1er Cru has a lively, vivacious bouquet with red currant jam, fresh strawberries and black plum aromas, perhaps even with a hint of black truffle (unusual at this early stage.) The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and well-judged acidity. This feels sappy in the mouth and very cohesive toward the sensual finish. Very fine. There is impressive substance here.

Bright, dark red. Musky raspberry, mocha and minerals on the inviting nose and palate. Sappy, charming Chambolle with harmonious acidity and well-judged extraction. The persistent finish shows good floral lift and a light gamey nuance. Dusty tannins call for a couple years of cellaring.
