Like the Fuées, this is highly perfumed and very Chambolle with its restrained, complex and ultra-pure nose of red pinot fruit but here there is a more evident taut muscularity to the delineated, intense and equally pure medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent energy as well as a mineral-streak that runs to the serious, dusty and driving finish. I quite like this and the balance and concentration should permit it to age well for at least a decade and last several more. Impressive. *Outstanding*
The 2009 Chambolle “Baudes” is just a tad riper in style than the stunning Nuits “Boudots”, but does not cross the line into overripeness and maintains lovely freshness in its slightly more broad-shouldered style. The fine, black fruity nose offers up scents of black cherries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs, violets, soil tones, vanillin oak and a nice touch of violets in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and tangy, with ripe tannins, fine focus and very good length and grip. Good juice. (Drink between 2018-2040)
The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes is a relatively firm style of Chambolle. The wine sweeps across the palate with layers of dark red fruit in a refined expression of this site. The Baudes is elegant and beautifully delineated through to the finish. This turns quite a bit more delicate in the glass, as crushed flowers, berries and mint add the final layers of complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2029. (AG)
Medium red. Complex nose melds strawberry, minerals and menthol. Silky, perfumed and juicy in the mouth, with an impression of peppery acidity giving a distinctly cool quality to the delicate red fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and sneaky length. Here the vineyard stands up to the vintage character. (ST)
