A broadly floral-inflected nose combines notes of lavender, rose petal and lilac with those of both red and dark currant, anise, sandalwood and tea. There is slightly better density to the powerful yet caressing medium-bodied flavors that are less mineral-driven but even more complex and persistent on the overtly saline finish. This is a really lovely effort and worth your interest.
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d’Orveau "Cuvée Ultra," which comes from 80-year-old vines, was showing a bit more wood on the nose compared to the other cuvées on the day of my visit. The well-balanced palate features raspberry, allspice, cola and light crushed stone notes, silky-smooth texture and gentle grip on the finish. This actually improves in the glass, gaining more depth and harmony. Good potential here for when this is bottled.(NM)
