This is aromatically similar to the Baudes but as is typically the case, it's noticeably spicier. The highly seductive medium-bodied flavors possess a gorgeous mouthfeel along with a bit more minerality though not the same power, all wrapped in an even firmer, overtly austere and beautifully complex finale. Here too extended patience will be necessary as this is quite tightly wound.
The 2021 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées (Domaine Louis Jadot) opens in the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, orange zest, rose petals and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, lively, concentrated palate that's taut and structured, concluding with a penetrating, mineral finish.
The crop consists of one double barrel from the previous vintage. A noble purple here, showing serious intent. Very interesting bouquet with some density, especially at the back of the palate, with a very good fruit-acid-tannin balance. Drink from 2026-2032. Tasted: October 2022
