Vinous – 93
Mugnier’s 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées shows the refined side of Chambolle to the fullest. Sweet, lifted and incredibly silky, the Fuées hovers on the palate with the effortless grace of a ballerina. There is plenty of depth, but as is often the case, the Fuées is built on themes that are implied rather than overtly stated, just as one might find in more modern styles of art or music.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2032
Robert Parker – 90
Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées needs a few swirls of the glass to get rid of some reduction, but then there emerges attractive brambly red berry fruit mixed with bay leaf and blood orange scents. It is well defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, nicely weighted in the mouth, just a pinch of sea salt lending some edginess on the finish. It takes its time to settle in the glass but it is certainly worth the wait.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030
