Chambolle Musigny, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2019

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Village, which contains 40% whole bunch, takes a few swirls of the glass to meld together, finally delivering airy blackberry and bilberry scents, perhaps more Morey in style than the titular village. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit, a granular texture and a salty, slightly brusque but fresh finish. Fine, but it will need some bottle age to smooth its edges. A second cuvée without the stems is perhaps just a little less interesting on the nose. Thomas Collardot is not sure what the final blend will constitute but I suspect there will be a few stems in there. 2024-2034

Fresh purple, a little less immediately in one’s face than the Bourgogne. Slightly more delicacy on the palate but with a firm finish. There are 12 barrels of this, plus three which have been made separately from the lieu-dit Gamaires, with 40% whole bunches. This cuvée had a slightly livelier nose, with the flavours spreading further across the palate. At the time of tasting, Thomas had not decided whether to bottle this apart or to blend some or all of it with the main cuvée. A trial blend seemed to build on the advantages of the stems while developing more richness. Three stars without the Gamaires, four stars as a blend. The rating given assumes a blend.
