Chambolle Musigny La Combe D'Orveaux VV 2014 Bruno Clavelier
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Combe d'Orveaux was just a little reduced on the nose when we met at the domaine. Like the Noirots, this is holding something back. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit; there is mouth-sapping salinity here and it is delineated with good tension, gently building towards a lightly grippy finish. Once the aromatics awaken, this will be a lovely Chambolle Musigny, even if it is a bit of a broody bugger out of barrel.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
Intense and unyielding, with cherry, blackberry, violet, smoke and mineral flavors yielding to dense yet ripe tannins on the finish. Nicely proportioned and lively, offering a long aftertaste.?
