Aromas of raspberries, rose petals, sweet soil tones and warm spices introduce the 2019 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes (Domaine Gagey), a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegantly muscular wine with a concentrated core of fruit, ripe tannins and a long, sapid finish. This cuvée is another fixture among the portfolio's highlights. (WK)
Les Baudes lies just beneath Bonnes Mares, on the northern edge of the village. It is a site which ripens early, delivering super-ripe fruit and making a wine that has a pronounced, perfumed Chambolle character, with ripe, high-toned red fruit on the nose and a silky, ethereal texture on the palate, yet there is no lack of structure here.

The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes 1er Cru shakes off a little reduction to reveal more black fruit compared to the Feusselottes, broodier and distinctly marine-influenced. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of licorice on the entry and a long, sweet finish. There is some oak here to be subsumed, but I like the weight and density in the mouth. Give it three or four years in bottle to absorb the wood. (NM)
