Tasting Notes

As is usually the case this is both more aromatically elegant and slightly more restrained with its cool collection of red and dark currant, lilac, plum and wet stone where an interesting hint of mandarin orange shows up. The sleek, intense and even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors possess focused power and if not the same size and weight as the Baudes, then certainly more refinement thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins on the wonderfully long finish. While this is also quite firm, this should be approachable after 6 to 8 years or so.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (66), April 2017

The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées has a very classy bouquet with redcurrant and cranberry fruit, more mineralité than the Les Baudes, showing impressive focus and mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, quite dense and grippy in the mouth with a pinch of spice and white pepper enhancing the finish. It feels a little backward, so afford this 5-6 years in bottle. But it's one of Louis Jadot's finest premier crus in 2015.
