"Showing some oak spice, this broad red is open-knit, evoking cherry, kirsch, licorice and spice flavors. Hints of sandalwood and sage grace the finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 100 cases made.–BS" (WS)

"The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées has a very classy bouquet with redcurrant and cranberry fruit, more mineralité than the Les Baudes, showing impressive focus and mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, quite dense and grippy in the mouth with a pinch of spice and white pepper enhancing the finish. It feels a little backward, so afford this 5-6 years in bottle. But it's one of Louis Jadot's finest premier crus in 2015.

These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers. See also "Maison Louis Jadot", "Domaine Gagey" and "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot"." (WA)

"Medium red. The nose suggests a more angular wine than the Baudes, offering scents of black cherry, cola and fresh flowers. Then wonderfully sweet and broad but firmly built, conveying superb density of texture and inner-mouth lift without any rough edges. The serious but refined tannins saturate the palate and leave the taste buds refreshed. Really captivating sweetness here." (VM)

"As is usually the case this is both more aromatically elegant and slightly more restrained with its cool collection of red and dark currant, lilac, plum and wet stone where an interesting hint of mandarin orange shows up. The sleek, intense and even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors possess focused power and if not the same size and weight as the Baudes, then certainly more refinement thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins on the wonderfully long finish. While this is also quite firm, this should be approachable after 6 to 8 years or so." (BH)
