2015 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Frere et Soeur Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Feusselottes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1332815 90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Once again reduction pushes the fruit to the background. There is excellent punch and detail to the equally saline-inflected but more refined medium weight flavors that possess better complexity on the lilting and well-balanced finale. This graceful effort is very Chambolle in style and it should drink well on the younger side if desired.  (1/2017)

89-92 points Vinous

 Deep red-ruby. Strawberry, spices and dark chocolate on the nose, complemented by a smoky element and lifted by a floral topnote. Nicely fat and sweet but also quite detailed. Despite its youthful medicinal reserve, this will be a charmer. Finishes tasty and long, with integrated tannins. (ST)  (1/2017)

90 points Decanter

 Lush, oaky nose, quite powerful for Chambolle. Rich and juicy on the palate with broad fruit and ample succulence. A touch flashy for the village, but the fruit is hard to resist.Drinking Window 2018 - 2028.(SB)  (2/2017)

90 points John Gilman

 Ironically, despite this being a full half point lower in octane than the Chambolle AC, this was showing more of a roasted personality and really is quite a dead-ringer for a 1990 red Burgundy. The bouquet is a ripe blend of baked black cherries and plums, chocolate, game, soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and plush, with a good core, a fruit-driven personality and a long, ripely tannic finish. This is quite adolescent today and perhaps more precision and soil signature will emerge with bottle age, but today, it does not seem to be a step up from the AC. (Drink between 2021-2050)  (12/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuesselottes showed a similar reduction on the nose as the Les Cras when I tasted it from barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin on the entry, moderate depth but feels rather static towards the finish. I would be looking for more depth and complexity once this is in bottle. I found myself more impressed by some of the top-perfuming village crus. Let's see how this turns out.Jean-Nicolas Méo has overseen a négociant branch of Domaine Méo-Camuzet for several years now under "Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeurs." They can be well worth seeking out..(NM)  (12/2016)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Chambolle Musigny

- A charming village in the Côte de Nuits, north of Clos Vougeot. Mostly red (and very little white) wine from limestone-dominated soil makes the communes' wine silky, with finesse rather than density. The wines are known for their aromatic purity and elegance. The Grands Crus are Musigny and Bonnes Mares.
