    The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes is from a small 0.19-hectare parcel located on thin soils between 260 and 280-metres. The roots have to penetrate through fissures in the limestone bedrock. It is adorned with a conservative, well-behaved bouquet with crisp black earthy fruit, undergrowth and truffle, but somehow I find that presently it lacks a little joie-de-vivre vis-a-vis other crus. The palate is medium-bodied with thick, sinewy tannins and a dense, opaque finish that needs a little more flesh. It feels just a little labored at the moment but hopefully it will "lighten up" by the time of bottling.

    The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes is the most massive and structured of the four Chambolle 1er Crus. Dark red stone fruits, smoke, licorice and spices fill out the wine's broad shouldered frame nicely. Today, the tannins are a bit raw, while the overall sensation is of a wine that needs time to come together. Readers need to be patient here. Drink 2021-2034

    An equally expressive nose features cool and airy aromas of raspberry, dark currant and plenty of spice nuances that are trimmed in a deft touch of wood. There is an intense minerality to the slightly more voluminous medium-bodied flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration that exhibit a velvety mouth feel on the firm, serious and gorgeously balanced finish. This is positively lovely and highly recommended. Drink 2021+

    Moderately saturated medium red. Strawberry, animal fur and coffee on the slightly liqueur-like nose. Fat, sweet, ripe and full but less nuanced than the some of Patrick Landanger's 2012s from the Côte de Beaune. Savory, soil-driven Chambolle with hints of dark berries and licorice. Finishes seriously tannic but with a slight dry edge. Drink 2020-2028

Chambolle-Musigny

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.
