- Tasting Notes
As one might reasonably expect this is much more elegant with its agreeably airy and pure aromas that combine notes of plum, violet, sandalwood, exotic tea and discreet spice nuances. There is equally good purity to the mineral-inflected and beautifully well-delineated middle weight flavors that deliver solid persistence on the balanced and refined finale. This is very Chambolle in character but with plenty of punch.

The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Village offers red plum and raspberry preserve on the nose that is just missing a little delineation at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with the oak just showing too much of its hand. There is satisfactory depth toward the finish but it will certainly need a couple of years after bottling to fully subsume the wood.
– Neal Martin, Robertparker.com, Score: 87-89
Good dark red. Slightly high-toned aromas of strawberry and underbrush, plus a whiff of coffee reduction. Saline and slightly dry, with redcurrant and leather flavors framed by sound acidity. Comes across as a bit hard and dry after the grand crus from Corton but finishes with good salty persistence.
