Barthod Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Chatelots 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

91-95 points Fine Wine Review: Barthod's Chambolle-Châtelots is from a vineyard that gives still greater finesse with deep, intense, pure powdered fruit that is very precise. (Issue #114; 2006) 92-93 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): From just north of Les Feusselottes (and west of tiny Combottes), the 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Chatelots offers a liqueur-like expression of black raspberry and cassis, its sweetness further enhanced by aromatic overtones of vanilla and gardenia, but never entirely shaking loose of an invigorating, tart fruit skin edge. This displays tremendous polish and proportionality on the palate, with refined tannins, an incipiently silken texture and an elegant persistence of both fresh and liqueur-like black fruits, sweet floral perfume, marrow, and faintly salty, chalky mineral notes. It is positively archetypal Chambolle (indeed, almost like a little Amoureuses) and capable, I predict, of giving great pleasure anytime from the near future to 8-10 years out. There will be only a little over 100 cases. (Apr 2007)
