A cool, pure and elegant nose combines aromas of essence of red cherry, lilac, violet, lavender and plenty of spice components. The sense of refinement continues on the sleek, mineral-driven and wonderfully textured medium weight flavors that deliver fine persistence on the firm, complex, classy and well-balanced finale This is lovely juice.
The 2015 Combe d’Orveau from Romain Taupenot is one of the ripest wines in the cellar this year, coming in at 13.6 percent octane, but is totally cool in the mouth and shows no signs of overripeness on the nose. The bouquet is pure and sappy, offering up a fine constellation of red plums, cherries, cocoa, gamebird, a lovely base of soil, cedar and a gentle topnote of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite plush on the attack, with a rock solid core, excellent acidity and a very long, fine-grained finish that closes with an almost saline note of minerality. 2023-2060+.
The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau has raspberry coulis, bilberry, sous-bois and cedar aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, a keen thread of acidity, a little saline with a conservative, quite structured finish that just needs a little more persistence on the aftertaste. This may develop after racking, so I look forward to tasting this after bottling.(NM)
(from the same original plot of 70-year-old vines as Perrot-Minot's Combe d'Orveau; Taupenot's and Perrot's mothers are sisters): Healthy dark red. Pungent red berries and crushed stone on the nose. Tightly wound and sharply delineated, offering superb floral lift to the tart cranberry, pomegranate and spice flavors. Finishes firm and long, with an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity.
