"The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Village comes mainly from four parcels in the northern part of the appellation, close to the Morey border. It has an attractive, quite intense bouquet of dark cherries, wild strawberry and crushed rose petal aromas. The palate is sappy on the entry, quite solid for a Chambolle. There are some attractive peppery, slightly tertiary, Morey-like notes toward the finish, which has good grip. Give this two or three years in bottle. " (VM)

"Here too there is enough reduction present to push the underlying fruit to the background. Once again there is fine precision and punch to the more obviously mineral-driven flavors that terminate in a dry and mildly clipped finish. This may come together as the supporting tannins seem a bit riper but that is not a guarantee." (BH)

Winery Notes:
Chambolle is often considered the most delicate and aromatic of Côte de Nuits wines. Sourced from two separate, estate-owned parcels: ‘La Justice,’ on the Brochon side, and ‘Les Seuvrees,’ on the Morey-Saint-Denis side, across the road from Charmes-Chambertin.
