A village wine that is up in quality with 1er crus and its price is a testament to that lol....besides the price this wine has so much concentration that it is currently in a confused state and has too much power. It needs a good 5 to 7 years before this begins to show its real pedigree. — a day ago
A perfect match @delectable. Tasting the 2014 brings back so many memories of visiting the domaine when I covered Burgundy. Today, the 2014 is wonderfully vibrant, with striking Chambolle sweetness that is tempered by its nervous, ethereal frame. Hold it for a few years if you can. — 4 days ago
Nose has decaying leaves, dried black cherry, distant new shower curtain, slight cow pasture, Maraschino cherry, unopened Bandaid and very slight eucalyptus.
Palate has ripe black cherry, dried blackberry, plum skin, cedar sawdust, blueberry seed, slightly drying on the medium finish and mild acidity remaining.
Not what we generally expect from C-M (our favorite village), but doing acceptably for a Sunday night bottle, peaceful.
2 hour decant, very...stinky on cork pull.

Cherry, strawberry, hay, wet soil, rose petals too. The palate is unbelievably balanced and good! Cherry and strawberry blossom up along the very strong acid frame. Some width with a nice layer of grip and velvet, some round and rolling tannins that kick start a fruity finish with hay and that floral thing that lasts for ever. This is beautiful!!! — 18 days ago
Newborn in the house plus virus mean plenty of time at home for nice bottles. Drinking in a good place. Very elegant. Some stems on the nose. Velvety. Good acid on the finish as you’d expect from 08s — 14 days ago
