2017 Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras (750ml)

Pinot Noir from Chambole-Musigny, Burgundy, France


The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras unfurls in the glass with a youthfully reticent bouquet of raspberries, cherries, rose petal and orange rind. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny-textured and multidimensional, with stunning depth and concentration at the core, mouthwatering acids and a searingly intense, mineral finish. This is a stunning Cras from a masterful winemaker at the peak of her powers.

93-95+ points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Jan 2019)

The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru has the most backward bouquet of all the crus from Ghislaine-Barthod, but given rigorous aeration, it opens beautifully in the glass to reveal Dorset plum, hoisin, orange sorbet and mineral aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with great depth on the entry, featuring a mixture of red and black fruit, red peppercorns, orange peel and a tang of marmalade toward the persistent finish. Expect this to land at the top of my banded score once in bottle.

91-93 points, Neal Martin, Vinous (Jan 2019)
