The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Village, which contains around 20% new oak, has a crisp black cherry and raspberry-scented bouquet, tight at first but fanning out with open arms upon aeration. The palate is just wonderful: super fine tannin, a killer line of acidity, a little crunchiness to the texture, but bestowed with immense purity on the finish. The saline touch completes one of the best village crus that I tasted during my visits.(NM)
Here too the expressive and elegant nose is super-fresh with its cool array of black cherry, kirsch and spice-scented aromas. There is excellent richness and tension to the subtly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that are slightly more firmly structured on the lingering and balanced finish where once again a hint of bitter cherry arises. Lovely stuff.
The 2015 Chambolle AC chez Barthod is also lovely, wafting from the glass in a beautifully sappy and floral blend of red and black cherries, violets, raw cocoa, a nice touch of soil, incipient notes of pigeon and a gentle base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a sappy core of fruit, fine soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a long, vibrant and complex finish. Just a gorgeous Chambolle villages in the making. (Drink between 2021-2055)
Good dark red. Aromas of roasted black cherry and licorice show a distinct element of surmaturité following the 2016s at this address, but quickly gained in energy and lift. Wonderfully sweet, spicy and concentrated for the vintage, with no shortage of acidity. A dark berry fruit bomb in the mouth, showing the creaminess of the vintage, but becomes more airy as it opens in the glass. Very long for village wine, finishing with ripe tannins saline mineral grip.(ST)
