2015 Chambolle-Musigny `Les Athets`
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Nuits
- Domaine Jean Tardy & Fils
Guillaume’s four plots of noble village wines are all really good. This comes from 2 parcels, one of 70 years old and one of 45 years old that sit in the middle of the appellation. It has a very pure Chambolle nose, forest berry, floral and inviting. The palate is full of fruit and warm spices, intense with silky smooth tannins and a very long finish. Drink from 2019.
`Quite deep ruby. Rich and intensely perfumed. Lots of delivery here. Dry finish after a spread of alluring fruit. Very spicy. Well done! Very clean finish. 50- and 80-year-old vines always make powerful wines.` 17/20 - Jancis Robinson, www.jancisrobinson.com
`The dense, serious and mouth coating flavors possess a borderline thick palate impression yet there is good energy on the muscular, rustic and lingering finish. This isn`t particularly Chambollesque but it is impressive.` - 88-91, www.Burghound.com
