Tasting Notes

This is a clear notch up in quality with explosive black cherry fruits and a very intense inner core of sappy, dense and marvelously long pinot essence. Quintessential Chambolle with its finesse and delicacy but this is most assuredly not light and it finishes quite firmly and with solid minerality.

Score: 90Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, March 2004

The 1999 Chambolle Musigny Les Cras is medium to dark ruby-coloured and has blackberry and currant aromas. This fresh, satin-textured, and medium-bodied wine is loaded with an assortment of dark fruits and spices. It is well-made and possesses loads of sweet ripe tannin. Drink it over the next 7 years.
