Chambolle Musigny 1er cru 2016 Comte de Vogue
|Brand||Comte de Vogue|
The 2016 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru, from the under-25 year-old vines "barred" from the Musigny, is a step up from the village cru in terms of depth and fruit intensity, a mixture of raspberry and blackcurrant, fine mineralité and a subtle touch of iodine. The palate is replete with crunchy black fruit, a fine-boned Chambolle with a dash of white pepper fanning out toward the finish. I appreciate the energy and the focus of this wine and it should age with style once in bottle.
From ‘young’ vines (10-25 years old) in Le Musigny. 25% new oak in 2016.
Very silky, slinky nose – almost suggestive of the swish of a satin negligee. Firm and fresh again with some blackcurrant savour plus some sweet overlay. Great zest and energy. Real punch. Very intense, and wonderfully long and vibrant.
