2012 Domaine de la Vougeraie Chambolle-Musigny

SKU #1233645 91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny is laced with dark cherry, plum and spice notes. Here the flavors are broad, rich, creamy and intense to the core. This is an especially dark, somber 2012 Chambolle-Musigny clearly built for cellaring. Smoke and tar linger on the potent finish. The village Chambolle is mostly fruit from Argillierès and the 1er Cru Baudes, vinified with 70% whole clusters. Inner quote mark (1/2014)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated deep red. Explosive aromas and flavors of raspberry, strawberry, truffle and smoky minerality. Dense, sappy and concentrated, showing excellent lift and soil complexity to the flavors of small red berries, minerals and truffley underbrush. Seriously strong village wine with noteworthy finesse to its tannins. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Village actually contains 40% (two barrels) of declassified premier cru fruit from “Les Baudes” and “Les Argillieres”. It has a dense, broody but attractive bouquet that showed just a little reduction that will disappear by the time of bottling. The palate is well-balanced with solid, assertive opening. There is a firm grip here, the oak needing to be absorbed towards the finish although there is plenty of concentration lent by the premier cru fruit. Good aging potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is notably riper than its 2013 counterpart with its array of plum, dark currant and discreetly spice scented nose. There is good richness to the relatively full-bodied and mouth coating flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the delicious, balanced and solidly persistent finish. This is a lovely effort where the only nit is that it's not especially Chambollesque in character; still this is really quite good and worth a look. Inner quote mark (1/2015)
