Barthod Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Cras 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

94-95 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): The 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras was slightly reduced and required a good shaking, but then ...! Aromas of black raspberry jam and high-toned suggestions of black tea, iris, and marzipan in the nose usher in a terrifically sweet, rich palate with jam and honey wreathed in flowers and reinforced by a sounding board of chalk. A long, lush, finish features continued sweet florality and confiture of black raspberry, with counterpoint from chalk dust and white pepper. For all of its richness, make no mistake: there is an underlying abundance of ultra-fine tannin more than sufficient to help see this through at least 12-15 years of exciting evolution. (Apr 2007)
