Lignier-Michelot Chambolle Musigny Vielles Vignes 2015
from 50+ year old vines, 40% whole cluster
Reduction presently dominates the nose though there is good freshness and verve to the detailed and mineral-suffused medium-bodied flavors where the supporting structure is finer still, all wrapped in a persistent finale. Notwithstanding the finer tannins, this is a robust Chambolle villages that will require a few years of cellar time to harmonize. Burghound

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes comes from vines on the Morey side of the appéllation and includes 50% whole cluster. I felt that the aromatics were a little diffuse when I tasted the wine, perhaps requiring the remainder of its barrel maturation to knit together. The palate is much better with crisp tannin, quite sharp dark cherry and raspberry fruit leading to a nicely focused, quite penetrating finish. There is good vigor here - it just needs the aromatics to up their game, which I am sure they will.
