2015 Hubert Lignier Les Baudes 1er Cru (1.5L)

Pinot Noir from Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy, France


The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes includes around 20% whole bunch fruit this year and was matured in two barrels (one and two years old). It has a ripe exotic bouquet with kirsch, orange zest and soy aromas, perhaps just a little too heady at the moment? The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berry fruit laced with white pepper and orange rind. It gains more substance towards the finish, gently fanning out and its sappiness leaves you wanting more.

91-93 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Issue # 228 - Dec 2016)

Bright full red. Deep aromas of strawberry and raspberry accented by herbs and pungent graphite minerality. Very ripe and thick but with lovely inner-mouth saline character and sappiness to its crushed red cherry, stone and mocha flavors. This densely packed, very pure wine really piques the salivary glands on the long, spicy, ripely tannic aftertaste.

91-93 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (Jan 2017)
