SKU #1381258 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very vivid and aromatic with perfume and floral character. Sliced strawberries and lemons. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and delicious aftertastes of fruit, hazelnut and light chocolate. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru offers plenty of brambly red fruit on the nose, interlaced with cold tea and scorched earth aromas. Fine delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied and flirts with over-ripeness on the kirsch infused opening, though reins everything in towards the finish with an attractive saline aftertaste. Good potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An alluring expression of pure cherry, strawberry and currant fruit, plus floral and spice notes, highlights this elegant red. A firm structure underlies it all, boding well for future development. (BS) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The very low yields in Chambolle this year have given the Premier Cru bottling chez Drouhin quite a black fruity personality, which recalls stylistically this cuvée back in the 1993 vintage. The bouquet is a youthful blend of black cherries, dark berries, woodsmoke, gamebird, mustard seed, chalky soil tones and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and quite solid at the core, with firm, well-integrated tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, tangy and youthful finish. This will need some bottle age before it starts to stir, but it will be very good once it has blossomed. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted from bottle, the 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru is showing well, though this blend of seven premiers crus was impacted by the frost, making for an unusually concentrated wine that will require more bottle age to attain its plenitude than most recent renditions. Offering up aromas of raspberries, cherries, dried flowers and citrus rind, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a broad, richly textured attack, satiny but abundant structuring tannins and juicy acids, concluding with a long finish where the wine's structure finally asserts itself in the form of gentle back-end grip. It's an excellent Chambolle that numbers among the comparative sleepers of the 2016 vintage. (WK) 92+ Inner quote mark (4/2019)

K&L Notes

94 points Tim Atkin, MW: "Seven premier cru vineyards, all located below the village, are used to make this wine, although some were affected by frost in 2016. This is always an excellent Chambolle, which is much more than the sum of its parts, with 15% whole bunches, plenty of texture and lacy, granular tannins." (01/2018)
