- Tasting Notes
While the expressive nose is not quite as complex as that of the Feusselottes, it is even more complex with its pretty array of spicy black currant, floral and sandalwood scents. This is also quite restrained in the mouth with strikingly well-detailed medium weight flavors that possess the same fine depth as telegraphed by the nose, all wrapped in a balanced and firmly structured finish. This beauty should amply reward 10 to 12 years of cellar time.

The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Groseilles comes from the domaine-s 0.52-hectare parcel of southeast facing vines planted as far back as 1937. It has a “distant” bouquet with broody, introverted black dusky fruit and forest floor/mushroom aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with solid tannins from a Les Groseilles, which is usually more feminine, perhaps due to the thick skins. But there is plenty of black plum and blackberry fruit to enjoy and it segues into a solid and masculine finish. Fine.

A beautifully balanced wine, the domaine’s 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Groseilles impresses for its captivating inner perfume, sweet, layered fruit and silky tannins. Dark red cherries, rose petals, cinnamon and hard candy linger on the supple, gracious finish. The Groseilles is one of the more feminine wines in the range. It is pretty hard to resist, even today.
