The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village, matured in 30% new oak, has a generous bouquet of red berry fruit, plus touches of brown spice and light loamy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and lightly spiced red berry fruit mixed with white pepper and sage, dovetailing into a slightly compact but fresh finish. Fine.
Coquard Loison Fleurot
Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot is a family estate with important holdings in Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux, Clos de Vougeot, Charmes Chambertin, Clos de la Roche and Clos Saint Denis. Claire Fleurot represents the latest generation of this family and as commercial director she is taking the domaine to new heights. She has enlisted the help of talented young winemaker Thomas Colladot who has spent time at Domaine Cathiard. The grapes are destemmed and while the wines see some oak, they maintain a signature pure, juicy style. Coquard Loison Fleurot remains fairly unknown outside of France (traditionally the domaine only sold its wine to local supermarkets) but word is spreading… Watch this space.
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.
