2015 Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Feusselottes (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1320842 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru les Feusselottes was aged in around 45% new oak this year. It has a beautiful bouquet, very pure and seductive with precise aromas of macerated red cherries, blood orange and a hint of blueberry, seeming to gain intensity with each swirl of the glass. The palate is defined by its seamless tannin, plump in the mouth but with counterbalancing acidity, rounded and sensual with black cherries, raspberry and a touch of licorice on the finish. This is simply superb.(NM)  (12/2016)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Elegant and ultra-pure black cherry, spice and rose petal aromas serve as a refined introduction to the forward, supple and detailed middle weight flavors that are impressively precise and this too evidences more than a trace of finishing minerality on the lacy and persistent backend. This is a stylish but serious wine that is beautifully balanced and unlike the Vignes Rondes, one that should be reasonably approachable young.  (1/2017)

91-93 points Vinous

 50% new oak): Dense, dark ruby-red. Pungent mineral and violet topnotes lift the aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, espresso and tropical dark chocolate. Silky, suave and relatively light on its feet, offering a lovely combination of serious fruit intensity and refined texture. A distinctly plush Chambolle but with excellent lift. Broad, suave tannins dust the entire palate on the long aftertaste.(ST)  (1/2017)

92 points John Gilman

 The 2015 Feusselottes from the Mugneret sisters is a lovely example of the vintage, with ripe, pure and sappy fruit beautifully bound to a fine base of soil tones. The bouquet is a fine, fine blend of sweet blackberries, black cherries, chocolate, violets, a lovely signature of soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and plush on the attack, with a sappy core, fine focus and grip, nascent complexity and a long, velvety and suavely tannic finish. This is loaded with puppy fat fruit of great charm, but there is a good base of soil underneath and one day it may rise up and compete with all this glorious fruit, but for the first decade of the 2015 Feusselottes’ life, this wine is going to be about the prettiest, sappiest fruit one can imagine.2021-2060.

Additional Information:


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.


- 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.


- 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.
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.
