Robert Parker – 88-90
The 2014 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru les Gruenchers, which Thibault has purchased fruit from since 2005, has a slightly austere bouquet of distant wet clay scents tincturing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and is nicely structured with a little gaminess coming through the finish. This is a decent Gruenchers, though to be honest, it is not the best that I have tasted in this vintage.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030
