The 2014 Chambolle-Musigny Villages, from 1.85 hectares of vines planed in 1955, was politely requesting a little more cohesion when I tasted it from barrel. The palate is better with slightly chewy tannins, a keen line of acidity and a slightly blocky but fresh finish that should gain finesse by the time of bottling. It might just be looking for an upswing once incarcerated in glass so that it settles at the top of my banded score.(NM)
Healthy medium red. Expressive aromas of red cherry, raspberry, coffee and smoky minerality. Sappy red fruit and spice flavors show enticing sweetness supported by excellent acid lift and a firm spine of tannins. Can't match the 2015 version for fleshiness but this wine is intense, precise and very easy to drink and finishes with lovely lift. I'd give it a couple more years in the bottle before pulling the cork. It wasn't too many years ago that this cuvée was a weak link in this cellar, but not any longer.(ST)
