The 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru, from declassified vines under 25 years in Musigny, has a more introverted bouquet than the Village Cru at the moment -- here, displaying more obvious woodland and sous-bois aromas. The palate leans more towards the red fruit spectrum with raspberry and wild strawberry, and an attractive tang of spice, dovetailing into a structured and lively finish. This is a classy Chambolle 1er Cru - not to be overlooked.

Tasting note: The intensely floral-suffused nose reveals notes of lavender, rose petal and lilac along with plenty of spice elements on the mostly red berry fruit aromas. There is notably more volume to the equally pure medium weight plus flavors that positively vibrate with energy and minerality before culminating in a harmonious and beautifully well-balanced finale. This really builds from the mid-palate as the finish is sneaky long.
