Saturated deep red. Profound aromas and flavors of red fruits, crushed rock, red licorice and smoky minerality; a wonderfully complex, pure expression of soil. Like liquid silk in the mouth but also incredibly concentrated and alive, showing a restrained sweetness and savory saline minerality. Wonderfully sappy and energetic on the extremely long, echoing finish, where the wine's refined tannins are perfected buffered by its mid-palate extract. Despite this wine's underlying power and guts, it maintains an essentially pliant, even gentle character.
The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau "Cuvée Ultra" has a vivacious, pure bouquet with blood orange-infused red cherry and cassis fruit, the oak beautifully integrated and allowing the terroir to shine through. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, somewhat "Cathiard" in style, with thr plush red cherry and blueberry keeping a rein on by the taut line of acidity. I like the energy on display here, the length likewise is impressive. It has great potential.
Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Dark raspberry, pungent smoky minerality and a sexy hint of underbrush on the Musigny-like nose and palate. Wonderfully rich, silky, fleshy wine with outstanding integrated mineral energy. An utterly pure, highly complex wine with great subtle depth and an explosive, unflagging finish featuring noble tannins and pronounced mineral salts. This beauty really leaves the taste buds humming. Incidentally, one of the four barrels of this elixir was new; Perrot-Minot told me he would not use any new oak if he only had three barrels of a wine.
