2016 Arlaud Chambolle-Musigny

This is darkly fruited and intense with thick skins but fabulous texture, tannins but very little bitterness and good freshness and balance. Even with the disease pressure, Cyprien said they didn`t lose further fruit from here, even while remaining biodynamic. (CW 7/11/17)

Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2016 Chambolle Musigny is completely destemmed. It has a lifted, slightly floral nose with iris and peony scents infusing the black cherry fruit, a little compact at first but gradually loosening up with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sharp, chalky tannin, initially rigid but fanning out modestly toward the tight, linear finish. This is a modest, conservative Chambolle-Musigny that does not want to create too much fuss. 87-89 points
