The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Feusselottes is gorgeous in this vintage. Bright floral notes and sweet spices meld into a core of expressive dark red fruit in a racy, sumptuous wine loaded with class and personality. Clean saline notes give the wine its energy and drive. With time in the glass, the Feusselottes turns explosive as the flavors seem to open up with gorgeous purity and class. Cecile Tremblay used 70% whole clusters here. I can't wait to taste the 2012 from bottle. This is a fabulous showing. (AG)
A beautifully layered nose of black raspberry, cassis, spice and floral scents introduces detailed and energetic middle weight flavors. There is a super fine grain to the shaping tannins that accentuate the sense of refinement and the intensely mineral-driven, balanced and lingering finish. This too is excellent. *Outstanding*
Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Feusselottes from Cecile Tremblay has a lot of reduction on the nose, rather animally and meaty although there remains fine delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and good acidity. There is still some reduction but there is a good wine underneath here. It sits comfortably between rusticity and modernism, but it will need time to shake off that reduction. (NM)
Healthy medium red. Very ripe aromas of wild strawberry, mocha and coffee complicated by smoky earth tones. Intense red berry confiture flavors show impressive energy for the year, no doubt due in part to the 70% whole-cluster fermentation. Finishes with a saline nuance and ripe, chewy tannins. (ST)
70% whole bunch. 50% new oak. Very deep purple. Very piercing, concentrated and lively on the nose. Makes quite an impression! Juicy and polished. Masses of hedonistic fruit. Lots of pleasure and black-fruit characters. Almost, but not quite, overripe on the nose. (JR)
