Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau has raspberry coulis, bilberry, sous-bois and cedar aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, a keen thread of acidity, a little saline with a conservative, quite structured finish that just needs a little more persistence on the aftertaste. This may develop after racking, so I look forward to tasting this after bottling.Drink Dates: 2019-2032Author: Neal Martin
Vinous | Rating: 93Healthy dark red. Piquant high-pitched scents of raspberry, bitter cherry and crushed rock. Wonderfully dense, bright and light on its feet, offering terrific rose petal lift to its pungent red berry and saline mineral flavors. A pure expression of crushed-stone terroir, and yet there's also a silkiness here that suggests a gentle extraction. The tannins are very suave but the wine shows signs of closing down in the bottle and will need patience. I'm not sure if I'd pick this brisk, sharply delineated beauty as a 2015.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: Jan 2018
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.
