Tasting Notes

Very generous wood and menthol fight with the otherwise attractively spicy and floral aromas of violet, lilac and cool red pinot fruit. There is fine mid-palate density to the even finer middleweight flavors that also exude a subtle bead of minerality on the bitter pit fruit-inflected finish that firms up noticeable on the dusty, austere and compact finale. This appears to have the necessary density to ultimately absorb the wood though note well that it's not likely to be an especially interesting candidate for early drinking.

The 2021 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes (Domaine Gagey) has also turned out very well, delivering aromas of cherries, raspberries, raw coca and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated palate, its sweet core of fruit underpinned by supple tannins.
