The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Beaux Bruns has a slightly more austere, reserved bouquet compared to the Les Chatelots, but still compelling with precise, cold stone-influenced red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, sharing the same linearity and precision as the Chatelots, but with more depth and grip towards the finish. It has a disarming sense of purity, just the right tinge of salinity to beckon another sip. This is excellent.(NM)
(these vines were picked on the first day of the harvest): Bright red with ruby tones. Discreet, complex aromas of black cherry, raspberry and plum. Combines very good density and excellent precision, with its dark berry and spice flavors showing an attractive restrained sweetness and less of the licorice character of the Chatelots and Combottes. More personality here! Finishes with juicy, persistent dark fruit and violet flavors and rather suave tannins that build with air. Looks to be a very successful vintage for this premier cru.(ST)
The Beaux Bruns 2015 from Domaine Barthod is a bit more reserved out of the blocks than the previous wines, but this is a very good sign for its potential down the road. The bouquet is deep, pure and gently musky in its aromatic constellation, offering up scents of black cherries, pomegranate, a lovely touch of spice, cocoa, gamebird, vanillin oak and a whisper of mustard seed in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely structured, with a fine kernel of sappy fruit in reserve at the core, suave tannins and lovely acids and focus on the long, primary and very promising finish. (Drink between 2025-2065)
This is almost a combination of the Combottes and Chatelots with its wonderfully layered nose of kirsch, spice, tea, violet and lavender scents. There is once again fine richness to the sappy and palate coating medium weight flavors that possess both a taut muscularity and power that carries over to the impressively persistent finale where about the only nit is a hint of warmth.
