Fine lace and silk are the words most often associated with this wine. Bright, intense color and complex aromas evoking violet, black cherry and damp earth. According to the vintages, there are also notes of truffle and game. Refined tannins coat the palate. Good balance between texture and acidity. Long aftertaste, with notes of cherry and candied fruit. Pairings: Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru should be served with delicately prepared dishes, such as "Canard aux cerises" (duck cooked with cherries) or "Boeuf aux morilles" (beef with morels). The cheeses should be ripe but not too strong.

Wine AdvocateSome of the barrels of 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru were quite reduced, but eventually I found one that seemed more expressive with mulberry and loganberry scents, more incense with time in the glass. I like the conviction that this Chambolle demonstrates. The palate is structured with crunchy tannin, Morey-like in style with a precise and quite persistent finish that bodes well for the future. One to watch out for once in bottle, because it possesses the backbone that should see it age nicely.
