This premier cru blend, like its Vosne-Romanée counterpart, is very fine this year, offering up a lovely nose of creamy red fruit, venison and forest floor. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and intense, its fine, chalky tannins cloaked in a rich, deep core of succulent fruit. This should age superbly. (WK)
Very vivid and aromatic with perfume and floral character. Sliced strawberries and lemons. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and delicious aftertastes of fruit, hazelnut and light chocolate. Drink in 2021.
An alluring expression of pure cherry, strawberry and currant fruit, plus floral and spice notes, highlights this elegant red. A firm structure underlies it all, boding well for future development. (BS)
The very low yields in Chambolle this year have given the Premier Cru bottling chez Drouhin quite a black fruity personality, which recalls stylistically this cuvée back in the 1993 vintage. The bouquet is a youthful blend of black cherries, dark berries, woodsmoke, gamebird, mustard seed, chalky soil tones and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and quite solid at the core, with firm, well-integrated tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, tangy and youthful finish. This will need some bottle age before it starts to stir, but it will be very good once it has blossomed.
