Tasting Notes

One of the highlights of the range is the 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Gruenchers, a beautiful wine that bursts with notes of rose petals, orange rind, raspberries, cherries and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and melting, with juicy acids, supple tannins and a vibrant core of fruit.

William Kelley, RobertParker.com, November 2019

The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Gruenchers 1er Cru, made from purchased fruit and matured in 50% new oak, has a well-defined bouquet of perfumed dark cherry, blueberry and light black currant fruit, becoming more floral with aeration. The oak here is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, crunchy tannin, a slightly chalky texture and fine delineation toward the finish. Very fine.

This is also moderately toasty with its fresh nose of more deeply pitched aromas of plum, dark cherry, spice and a wisp of violet. There is both better volume and mid-palate density to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a velvety mouthfeel, all wrapped in a generous if not particularly complex finale though I suspect that more depth will develop with a few years of bottle age.
