Noticeable muddle and funk that showed ungainly on first pass. This dissipated with time but the fruit never made much of an appearance. This could have had a slight flaw.

After pulling a stunning bottle of 1985 Faustino I Gran Reserva last night I was anxious that I might be pressing my luck with Joseph Drouhin’s 1992 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru. There was no need to be... I hit the 25 year red burgundy jackpot. Wow.

Exotically perfumed with a smoldering character that features a smoky and savory mix of lavender, earl grey, clove, grapefruit peel, cedar, and sappy red fruit. Everything translates to the palate with surprising focus that’s driven by lifting acidity and loads of savory undertones that blend an intoxicating mixture of piney herbs, earthy tobacco, and lively limestone minerality. The satiny texture not only heightens the depth of flavor, but pushes the seamless finish out a few more beats. Stunning.

The nose on this wine is fantastic showing true elegance and delicacy. The nose is alive with fresh but very sweet red fruit. Unfortunately the palate was faded and austere. #chambollemusigny #burgundy #josephdrouhin #pinotnoir #ctbucklinwine
