  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($90-$156) Deep, bright red-ruby. Wild aromas of black raspberry, mocha and mace. Rich and fat but a bit youthfully monolithic, showing more game and spice than fruits and flowers today. Much more closed and tannic than the Hauts-Doix. This appears to be in the process of shutting down.

    Slightly more elegant and higher-toned aromas of red pinot and violets nuanced with hints of spice and earth dissolve into rich, structured and delicious flavors that are muscular to the point of being robust on the austere but long finish. This too is built to age because while the mid-palate is relatively round and generous, the slightly dry finish tightens up quickly and will need time to soften.

    The Groffier 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Sentiers offers sweet and at the same time tart black cherry and black raspberry, black tea and blond tobacco, taking on a faintly bitter herbal edge in its finish of humus and caramel-tinged black fruits. This displays formidable density and lightly cooked fruit intensity quite in contrast with the personality of the Hauts Doix but it is much less winsome today, and seems to want yet more time in the cellar, perhaps 5-7 years to permit proper assessment.

  • With his son Serge, Robert Groffier creates spectacular Pinot Noirs that are the powerful benchmarks of the respective communes. The Amoureuses, with its succulent fruit, is a kaleidoscope of aromatics and flavorsl. The Clos de Beze is an effort unto itself and has a mouth-coating, sweet earthy, gamy, bramble quality that is elegant and classy. The Sentiers and Haut Doix Chambolles offer classic, high-toned red berry and cherry elements that tend toward a bit more elegance and herb in the former and supple, round vibrancy in the latter.
