Description

‘It’s really a Chambolle-Musigny,’ says Jean-Marie Fourrier of this Premier Cru located in a hollow just below the Musigny Grand Cru. East-facing, so a little cooler, it’s a site that has produced, a fine, detailed, racy Pinot Noir in 2018, with plenty of colour, sappy bramble and black cherry flavours, fine tannins and a fresh, balanced, tapering finish. 94 points, Tim Atkin MW, Decanter

Dense bright purple, with a perfectly proportioned nose, crystalline clarity along with some riper dark cherry fruit on the palate, excellent length with really fine pure fruit stretching out beautifully. This is a superb example. 93-95 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
