Red Burgundy-Cote de Nuits

2015 Maxime Cheurlin Chambolle Musigny 1er Feusselottes

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: $139.00

"This is restrained and cool to the point of being all but aromatically mute and only aggressive swirling reveals reluctant notes of red currant, cherry and floral hints. There is an ultra-refined mouth feel to the lacy and almost delicate middle weight flavors that culminate in a linear, balanced and lingering finish. This is pretty much textbook Feusselottes. (90-92)/2022+" Allan Meadows

"(from rented 60-year-old vines): Bright, dark red. Alluring scents of raspberry, spices and flowers. Concentrated and creamy on the palate, showing lovely sweetness and energy to the red berry and spice flavors. Finishes with serious tannic clout and lingering notes of spices and menthol. This wine has the spicy depth and structure to age gracefully." 89-92 Steve Tanzer
