laying-down2017 Chambolle-Musigny, Domaine Castagnier

Product: 2017-0750-00-8013088
  • Ready, but will improve

Description

Very fresh and direct, this has a lovely soft appeal on the mid-palate. The essence of the old vines (planted in 1921) really comes through and gives a silky plushness to the palate. This is very good for village level. There’s just a touch of graphite to finish. Drink 2020-2025.

There is always a breathless and rather chaotic energy in the Castagnier cellar but this year Jérôme could scarcely contain his enthusiasm. He loves his 2017s. To him they have the friand and gourmand style of 2014 but with more depth and density. He started his harvest on 6th September and employed less pigeage (punching down) than usual. The exigencies of the 2018 vintage meant Jérôme was obliged to move his 2017s to tank earlier than usual but even this has worked to his advantage: less time in wood has dialled up the focus and exuberance of this irresistible range of 2017s.
