Wine Advocate | Rating: 88The 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras, which includes around 15% stem addition, was showing a slight reduction on the nose, underneath dark berry, raspberry coulis and a touch of dried fig. The palate is medium-bodied but the oak needs to be more subsumed into the fruit - it sticks out a little here and dominates the finish. Hopefully it will knit together during the remainder of its elevage. I simply may have caught this on a bad day.Author: Robert Parker

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.
