Burghound | Rating: 89A discreet, cool and wonderfully pure nose presents notes of violet, plum, black cherry and a hint of spice. The detailed, intense and stony middle weight flavors possess a lilting mouth feel while delivering fine depth and length on the refreshing and well-balanced finale. This is textbook Chambolle with a strikingly nuanced delivery.Author: Allen Meadows
Vinous | Rating: 89Good medium red. Musky aromas of black raspberry, smoke and minerals, plus a whiff of game. Juicy but not especially high-pitched, offering scents of redcurrant, raspberry, tobacco and milk chocolate Substantial ripe tannins showing today. Here's a village wine that will need time in bottle.Author: Antonio Galloni
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 16Very intense nose. Then juicy and lighter on the palate than the nose suggests. Polished and savoury. Lightly muscular. Light chew on the end. Very ambitious for a village wine.Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 89The 2014 Chambolle-Musigny Villages has a crisp, marine influenced bouquet all with fine delineation, a mixture of red and black fruit that unfurl in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with good salinity and grip on the entry, quite structured with good backbone, leaning almost to a Morey Saint Denis-like classicism towards the lightly spiced finish. This should drink well over the next 6-8 years. Tasted November 2016.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
