Chambolle Musigny Les Veroilles, Domaine Ghislaine Barthod 2014

Tasting Notes

In what is a consistent theme with the Barthod 2014s the aromatic profile is quite cool and airy with a nose that closely resembles that of the Fuées but with even more floral influences and perhaps a bit less spice. As is often the case with this wine it is youthfully restrained and backward with a pungent minerality adding lift to the almost painfully intense flavors that culminate in a racy, refreshing and moderately austere finale. In the same vein as the Fuées this will definitely require extended bottle age before being ready for prime time. Note: from a .37 ha parcel that is a monopole at the 1er level - this parcel was upgraded to premier cru status in 1987
