The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Derrière La Grange 1er Cru includes 40% whole bunch this year. It has the most vivacious and forward of the domaine’s cuvées, offering ebullient blackberry, raspberry, wild fennel and a hint of oyster shell. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. Quite suave and very harmonious in texture, though it would benefit from more depth and grip toward the finish (perhaps a little more maceration might have helped). Still, this is a finely crafted, elegant Chambolle-Musigny.
