No Tasting Note Given.
Extremely complex aromas of wet earth, mushrooms and blackberries. Medium to full body, gorgeous, velvety tannins and a dense mouthfeel. Very Compacted and long. A clearly outstanding young wine. Drink now or hold.
Some of the barrels of 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru were quite reduced, but eventually I found one that seemed more expressive with mulberry and loganberry scents, more incense with time in the glass. I like the conviction that this Chambolle demonstrates. The palate is structured with crunchy tannin, Morey-like in style with a precise and quite persistent finish that bodes well for the future. One to watch out for once in bottle, because it possesses the backbone that should see it age nicely.(NM)
A distinctly ripe yet pure, elegant and still fresh nose consists of essence of red berries, spice elements and a hint of tea. There is evident minerality to the wonderfully textured middle weight flavors that are perhaps not quite as elegant as those of the villages yet there is better depth and length on the slightly firmer finish.
The 2015 Chambolle Premier Cru bottling from Maison Drouhin is back in the 1990- stylistic camp, with bottomless depth of gently roasted fruit and a nice touch of meatiness on both the nose and palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of black cherries, dark chocolate, roasted venison, woodsmoke and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with a gently roasted personality, suave, seamless tannins and excellent focus and grip on the nascently complex finish. A fine bottle in its style. 2021-2055.
13.8% alcohol, the highest of the range in 2015, according to Frédéric Drouhin; from grapes harvested on September 10 and 11 and totally destemmed): Bright, full red. A touch of flinty reduction to the aromas and flavors of raspberry and strawberry. Ripe and sweet, showing noteworthy energy and flavor intensity but coming across as quite firm, even a bit ungiving, today owing in part to its reductive quality. This densely packed premier cru boasts a firm spine of acids and dusty tannins and will need at least a few years of bottle aging.(ST)
