Oak notes of vanilla and sweet smoke are finely stitched into the velvety texture and balanced by the floral, cherry and currant flavors in this elegant red. Fine length. (BS)
The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées has the best bouquet from Jadot among the premier cru Chambolles, with crisp red cherry and raspberry notes soaked in minerals and smoke, an achievement considering the vineyard was impacted by frost. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin, crisp acidity and a lithe, sensual, silky smooth finish. Bravo. (NM)
The Chambolle Fuées is a highlight in the Jadot range in 2016, wafting from the glass with a pure bouquet of cherry, raspberry and a top note of peony, with a classy framing of new oak. The wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and deep at the core, with excellent concentration, its fine tannins cloaked in a crystalline core of fruit. This will develop beautifully in the cellar. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040. (WK)
There is plenty of wood/menthol influence to the notably more elegant nose that exhibits notes of plum, dark currant, orange pekoe tea and ample spice wisps. The rich and mouth coating flavors are finer and much more mineral-driven with a lovely sense of underlying tension adding lift to the beautifully persistent and complex finale where a touch of pit fruit bitterness appears. This is really lovely stuff and very Fuées in character.
the crop was down 50% from normal): Good dark red. Reduced aromas of musky dark berries, herbs and crushed stone. Surprisingly creamy and thick on entry, then less showy but larger-scaled in the middle palate than the Baudes. More about salty minerality and soil tones than fresh fruit in the early going, this wine conveys a cooler, even somewhat austere character. Finishes with rather muscular tannins that reminded me of Bonnes-Mares. This 2016 will require extended cellaring. (ST)
The yields in 2016 in les Fuées were even a bit shorter than in les Baudes, but again, the wine has turned out very well indeed. The aromatic constellation is a fine blend of red and black cherries, woodsmoke, chalky soil tones, gamebird, mustard seed and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and a tad more reserved in profile than the Baudes, with a fine core of fruit, tangy acids and very refined tannins adding grip and structural integrity to the long and complex finish. Fine juice. 2025-2060.
