Marchand-Tawse Chambolle Musigny 2014
The wines of Chambolle-Musigny are situated somewhere between the strength of Bonnes-Mares and the finesse of Musigny. With these two great Grand Cru, and a couple dozen excellent 1er Cru vineyards, in the tiniest of villages, Chambolle is a focal point of what makes Burgundy Burgundy. We talk of silk and lace, feminine (the un-PC French always say). This village wine is an assemblage two parcels from the lower slopes 'Les Sordes' and 'Les Chardannes', and gives you that juicy black cherry black currant fruit, smoky and fine. And then the intensity starts to climb, slowly at first, then vigorously through to an energetic finish.
