Mostly in Chambolle-Musigny, this Grand Cru has a firmer, more solid character than many of the more refined offerings from this village. This is very evident in this dense wine, with its new wood and the power and intensity of black, very ripe fruits. The tannins are already well integrated with the fruit. No doubt this will age.
