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

Pinot Noir from Chambole-Musigny, Burgundy, France


The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Véroilles is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of cassis, blackberries, warm spices and a subtle framing of new wood. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a richly structured and tight-knit core, a bright line of acidity and a long, mineral finish. Along with the Cras, this gets my nod as likely Barthod's longest-lived wine of the vintage.

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

The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny Les Véroilles 1er Cru, whose 0.38 hectares will be labeled monopole from next year, has a straightforward bouquet that perhaps does not quite deliver the same complexity as the other Premier Crus. The palate is medium-bodied with a sorbet-fresh opening; veins of orange peel and marmalade tincture the dark berry fruit, and a tang of oyster shell emerges toward the precise finish. Very fine.

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