Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2019 Jan.)

This is also ultra-fresh, cool and airy with restrained aromas that are composed of notes of dark currant, blueberry, lavender, violet and a wisp of spice. There is once again excellent punch and detail to the wonderfully vibrant medium-bodied flavors that exude evident minerality on the focused and chiseled finish that delivers first-rate persistence. This elegant effort is a combination of finesse and punch.

Vinous - Score: 93 (2019 Oct.)

The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru has a very different nose than the Village Cru, here, more red fruit, nicely pixelated, certainly more mineral-driven and with more spice. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, good body, focused and animated with a dash of white pepper and clove towards the finish, the mouth tingling long after it has departed. This oft overlooked label should not be. Tasted at the Domaine.
