Matured in 25% new oak and 90% whole bunches, the 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Sentiers 1er Cru is the most opulent of Groffier’s 2019s with kirsch and orange zest infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a little oak to be subsumed on the entry. Good weight, quite muscular for a Chambolle with liberally sprinkled black pepper enhancing the finish. A little stocky, bottle age will smooth any jagged corners.
80% whole bunch, 20% new wood, 80 year old vines, on clay soil below Bonnes Mares. Rich purple, a slightly pruny nose here, the fruit has got ripe. Very sumptuous in the mouth not too dry at the finish, this is actually really good wine in a riper fruit style, and the whole bunch usage leaves a fresher finish.
