Chambolle Musigny Beaux Bruns, Domaine Ghislaine Barthod 2018

Tasting Notes

Picked on August 26, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Beaux Bruns reveals a deep bouquet of sweet red berries and plums, mingled with hints of raw cocoa, spices and soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, succulent and enveloping, it's elegantly fleshy, with excellent concentration and an ample chassis of fine, powdery tannin. This is typically one of the most forward premiers crus in the cellar, and that appears to be the case this year.

Picked on the 26th of August but it is still a totally intense black colour. Huge weight but it is not clumsy, a dark fruit, perhaps some plums, a little bit of oak, really quite backward. Was time to pick from the fruit point of view but have avoided dry tannins.
