Pinot Noir from Chambolle-Musigny, Cote de Nuits, Cote d’Or, Burgundy, France
Fine lace and silk are the words most often associated with this wine. Bright, intense color and complex aromas evoking violet, black cherry, and damp earth. According to the vintages, there are also notes of truffle and game. Refined tannins coat the palate. Good balance between texture and acidity. Long aftertaste, with notes of cherry and candied fruit.
92 Points – James Suckling
This is warm and round with soft and velvety tannins. Medium to full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows density and potential for the vintage. Better in 2020, but already fun to taste.
92 Points – Wine Spectator
A densely textured red, exhibiting black cherry, blackberry, violet and oak spice aromas and flavors. Concentrated and vibrant, with a long, dusty finish. Impressive, but will need time. Best from 2022 through 2037.
90 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Soaring from the glass with a lovely bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, spices, orange rind and coniferous forest floor, Drouhin’s 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Village is medium-bodied, velvety and supple, with succulent acids, melting tannins and a fragrant core of fruit. Tasted from bottle, this quintessentially elegant wine is showing very well, and it will offer a broad drinking window.
