Red Burgundy-Cote de Nuits

2015 Amiot Servelle Chambolle Musigny villages

This is the northern half of Burgundy's famed Cote D'Or. It is home to perhaps the noblest expression of Pinot Noir on planet Earth, if not the noblest expression of any wine on Earth; the minute yet palpable differences from single parcels of land were intuited by Cistercian monks who farmed the 'golden slope' for approximately two thousand years. From Corgoloin in the south, to Marsannay in the north, the finesse and complexity of the wines is at times both hauntingly beautiful and mind boggling. Its most celebrated villages: Nuits St Georges, Vougeot, Flagey Echezeaux, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Gevrey Chambertin, and Morey St Denis.

Price: $69.00

A blend of 8 lieux dits from contrasting exposures and soils of the entire village : Les Bas-Doix, Les Danguerrins , Les Argillières, Les Drazeys, Aux Croix, les Clos, Les Bussières, and les Cras. Ahhh Chambolle. The lovely. I thought that this was pure loveliness....
STUNNINGLY CHARMING....

"(13.8% alcohol; made from seven different parcels, the largest of which is the premier cru Les Bas Doix, near Vougeot; vinified with 30% whole clusters, vs. 15% for the village Morey): Less exuberant on the nose than the Morey, dominated by musky brown spices. Then more harmonious on the palate, offering fine-grained red berry and spice flavors with a nicely tangy quality for this very ripe vintage. This suave village wine finishes with substantial but smooth tannins that spread out horizontally to coat the palate on the persistent, mineral-tinged finish. Prune Amiot advises her clients to wait three or four years for these village wines." 91 Steve Tanzer

"(the majority of the blend comes from Les Bas Doix with the rest from Les Drazey, Les Cras, Les Bussières and Les Danguerrins). A distinctly ripe yet airy menthol-inflected nose combines floral notes with those of red and black cherry liqueur-like scents. Not surprisingly there is a bit more refinement to the focused, lacy and stony flavors that are very Chambolle in character, all wrapped in a balanced, lingering and youthfully austere finish. Worth a look. 89/2022+" Allan Meadows
