Interestingly this is a bit less aromatically elegant though it is more complex with its range of plum, violet, anise and herbal tea scents. I like the delineation and intensity of the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that deliver plenty of punch on the moderately structured finale that displays a touch of stems.

Dark red. Raspberry, cranberry and crushed rock on the pungent nose. Sappy and youthfully imploded, conveying a powerful impression of salinity and peppery lift to its crunchy red berry flavors. Pure crushed rock on the chewy, very long finish. Make sure to serve this with food if you open a bottle anytime soon. Drink 2023-2034
The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
