Vertical Tasting in Chambolle en Musigny, March 1994

GHISLAINE BARTHOD

93 Chambolle Musigny

Delicate and precious. Style not to my taste, but very well-made. Will age well.

93 Premier Cru « Beaux Bruns »

Fresh, fruity nose ... a bit weedy and herbaceaous on the palate with an aftertaste on the retro-olfactif. A petullent, arrogant wine.

 

AMIOT SERVELLE

92 Premier Cru « Amoureuses »

93 Premier Cru « Amoureuses »

91 Premier Cru « Charmes » - woody, elegant

93 Premier Cru « Charmes » - excellent race

An orgy. All are delicious, artfuly structured and full of elegant power. Tannins are done well and the wines are balanced. Enormous potential here.

 

JOSEPH DROUHIN

91 Amoureuses – very closed today, tight, still so young

93 Amoureuses – very special. Lots of body. Confiture de fruits rouges. Coffee. So charming.

 

DOMAINE COMTE DE VOGUE

91 Musigny

85 Musigny

The 91 is the lesser wine, but is tasting better today than the 85 with its better structure and power. Two very different wines. Both delicious.

 

JACQUES-FREDERIC MUGNIER

93 Chambolle – all over the place and unfocused, sloppy. Too sweet, too confectioned. But nothing too terminal, so it may sort itself out.

93 Les Fuées – nose is fresh and clean but tannins biting. Will be fine.

93 Musigny Grand Cru – weird nose, but eventually get to the black pepper and violets. A fat and very concentrated wine. Will do well.
