Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes 2009
A beautifully scented wine offering violets and red berries together with a smooth, silky palate, firm yet smooth tannins and lovely mouth-feel make this a wine of great finesse and elegance.
Chambolle Musigny lies just north of Vougeot and south of Morey Saint Denis. There are 24 Premiers Crus and 2 Grand Crus. Its reputation is due to the great quality of the wines.
A fine April saw early flowering with a plentiful crop. June was unseasonably hot and there was some drought stress in certain areas. By July ripening was advancing at a pace. August was hot and dry and a fine harvest promised for September. For once the triage table was largely superfluous with perhaps only 10% of the crop discarded. Overall , a great vintage in terms of quality and quantity
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and aged 12-15 months in oak barrels before bottling.
