Robert Parker – 93
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru soars from the glass with an exquisite bouquet of raspberries, cassis, dried rose petals, cinnamon and cloves. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and supple, with an expansive attack that segues into a fleshy core of sweet and succulent fruit, framed by lively acids and melting tannins. Generous, open and expressive, this will offer a broad drinking window and is well worth seeking out.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2043
Vinous – 90
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru comes from six lieux-dits. It has a vibrant blackberry and raspberry bouquet, touches of pressed iris and undergrowth developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied but with a little more amplitude than the Vosne-Romanée, if not quite the same sensuality toward the finish. Hopefully it will gain a little more terroir expression by the time of bottling.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2035
