Antonio Galloni, February 2012,
The 2010 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cabots shows lovely focus and length in a classy, understated style that is highly appealing. This, too, is a relatively delicate, feminine wine meant for near-term drinking. Bright floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and brightness to the expressive fruit.
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.
