The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Aux Beaux Bruns 1er Cru has one of the most elegant bouquets from Ghislaine Barthod, offering beautiful, seductive red currant, crushed strawberry and crushed rose petal aromas. The palate is very well defined, with strict tannins framing dark berry fruit laced with soy and black pepper. A little introverted toward the finish. Very fine.
92-94 points, Neal Martin, Vinous (Jan 2020)
Picked on August 26, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Beaux Bruns reveals a deep bouquet of sweet red berries and plums, mingled with hints of raw cocoa, spices and soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, succulent and enveloping, it's elegantly fleshy, with excellent concentration and an ample chassis of fine, powdery tannin. This is typically one of the most forward premiers crus in the cellar, and that appears to be the case this year.
