The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru les Gruenchers has a very able bouquet with red cherries, crushed strawberry and wilted rose petal scents that blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation, a crisp line of acidity, plenty of energy and a vibrant, ripe and rounded finish that seems to caress the senses. Bon vin, as they say.(NM)
A beautifully broad-ranging nose reflects notes of cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, spice and a pretty floral top note. There is a subtle stony element suffusing the attractively well-detailed medium weight flavors that also possess a lacy mouth feel while delivering fine if not truly exceptional complexity on the balanced finale. This should be enjoyable young but reward mid-term keeping.
After the very good showing of the Clos Sorbés, the 2015 Gruenchers was back to the more agitated side of the cellar and the wine was very difficult to get a proper read on in mid-November. The wine is certainly long and sappy, with plenty of red and black cherry fruit, plums, chocolate, gamebird and soil in evidence on the mélange of aromatic scents. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and the tannins are suave, but this wine is out of sorts and not showing a whole lot of balance or focus at the present time, due to its racking. (Drink between 2023-2060)
Medium red. Blueberry lifted by a floral topnote on the alluring nose. Juicy and spicy on the palate, offering lovely clarity of flavor. Not nearly as thick as the Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes but seduces with its balance of sweetness and acidity. A seriously structured wine with nothing austere about it.(ST)
