Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau |Cuvee Ultra| has a vivacious, pure bouquet with blood orange-infused red cherry and cassis fruit, the oak beautifully integrated and allowing the terroir to shine through. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, somewhat |Cathiard| in style, with the plush red cherry and blueberry keeping a rein on by the taut line of acidity. I like the energy on display here, the length likewise is impressive. It has great potential.Author: Neal Martin
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.
