Tank sample. Bright crimson. Ripeness plus energy. Firm tannins and acidity – so everything in place for an eventual fine bottle! Still embryonic.

Medium red. The nose suggests a more angular wine than the Baudes, offering scents of black cherry, cola and fresh flowers. Then wonderfully sweet and broad but firmly built, conveying superb density of texture and inner-mouth lift without any rough edges. The serious but refined tannins saturate the palate and leave the taste buds refreshed. Really captivating sweetness here.

“Jadot’s 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées is very pretty, opening in the glass with notes of sweet red fruit-a mélange of strawberries, plums, cherry and raspberry-cocoa nib and peony. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fine-grained and expansive, with chalky tannins, bright acids and a deep core of fruit, its detail and delicacy marrying to great effect with the inherent richness and authority of the vintage.”
