The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes comes from purchased grapes sourced from two lieux-dits: Drazy and Grammaire. It is 100% destemmed with 20% new oak. It has a seductive nose of baked black cherries, vanilla pod and hints of blue fruit that blossom immediately in the glass. The palate is well balanced with succulent ripe red cherry and cranberry fruit, a pleasant chalky texture toward the latter half with a mineral-intense finish. Excellent. (NM)
I did not note how badly frost damages the vines were here, but less than in the la Bussière I seem to recall. The 2016 Chambolle V.V. is an excellent wine in this vintage, offering up a refined and youthful bouquet of black cherries, plums, chalky soil tones, gamebird and a nice, smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully sappy at the core, with good acids, moderate tannins and a long, nascently complex and very well-balanced finish. Charm personified! 2021-2060.
A more elegant nose features pretty aromas of red currant, plum and discreet spice whiffs. The sleek, vibrant and subtly mineral-inflected flavors possess solid definition on the clean and dry-in-the-best-sense finish that flashes a hint of youthful austerity.
(from Les Drazey and Les Gamaires): Medium red. High-pitched aromas of cranberry, pomegranate and flowers. A distinctly lean, salty wine dominated by tart red berries. Tightly wound, dry and classic, finishing with a touch of mineral austerity. (ST)
