  • Ready, but will improve

Description

This is very nicely perfumed and has a lovely mid palate of concentrated raspberries. It is quite dense for Chambolle, with an excellent fresh finish.
Jasper Morris MW, Berrys' Burgundy Director

Given that the sugar levels are not high in 2011, Ghislaine Barthod expected something lighter this year. However, the wines have come out with good texture and density. While accessible in the medium term, they show an attractive freshness and energy which puts them into a different class from the attractive 2007s. Chambolle-Musigny has done well in 2011, since the style of the appellation appreciates the fresher aspect of lower alcohol levels.
