"The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes offers a composed bouquet, understated at first but soon opening with red and black cherries, woodland and cold limestone aromas that are nicely detailed. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with plenty of candied red berry fruit. Indeed, there is a "sweet shop" tincture to this Chambolle-Musigny that I like, with plenty of sucrosity on the finish that does not impede upon terroir expression or delineation. Excellent.

The vineyard owned by the Gagey family, proprietors of Louis Jadot, label the wines "Domaine Gagey", whereas those from contracted growers are labelled "Maison Louis Jadot" (see separate entry)." (WA)

"Pale medium red. Sexy perfume of raspberry, crushed stone and espresso. Captivating, silky, round Chambolle premier cru with terrific intensity and definition to its red berry, mineral and mint flavors. This restrained, classy beauty finishes with polished tannins and noteworthy subtle persistence." (VM)

"Notes of menthol and discreet wood merge with those of red cherry, floral, spiced tea and violet. The succulent, round and utterly delicious broad-shouldered flavors exhibit a taut muscularity that carries over to the much firmer and more powerful flavors that deliver exceptionally good depth and length. Textbook Baudes that is built-to-age." (BH)

"Still solid and firm, this wine has impressive potential. Its tannins are a reminder that the vineyard is close to Morey Saint-Denis. Under those tannins runs a seam of ripe fruits that will develop richly as the wine matures. Drink from 2024." (WE)
