There is enough reduction present to render evaluating the nose impossible. The cool, pure and restrained middle weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality that adds a sense of lift to the dense yet refined mouth feel before a hint of bitter cherry arrives on the defined and lingering finish. This will need to add a bit of depth but if it does it could very well be a terrific Chambolle villages. Note that this should be approachable after only 4 to 5 years if desired.

The 2014 Chambolle Musigny Clos de l'Orme appears to have more pinoté on the nose than the Vosne-Romanée Villages at the moment, perhaps better delineation with citrus-fresh red berry fruit mixed with orange zest wafting temptingly from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a confit-like opening, red plum and pomegranate, silky in the mouth with a succulent finish. This is a lovely wine from Cathiard.
