| ||Tasted by Chris Newport on 5/24/2013: Really nice bottle of wine. Light and delicate, both in the glass and on the palate, but with a nice intensity of flavor. Still mostly primary - bright red fruits and some underbrush. Very "Chambolle" in character. Similar to a lot of good 1er Cru Savignys with perhaps a bit more elegance. Open and giving. Drink now or hold. (1517 views)|
| ||Tasted by Xavier94 on 3/22/2013 & rated 87 points: A very subtle, elegant nose of dried sweet red cherries, mineral, earth, vegetal notes and woodland underbrush mark the nose and introduce very pronounced tight, minerally driven flavors of red cherry liqueur-like fruit and a bit of brown sugar and sweet earth. The acidity is almost citric in its delivery and works well with the minerality that extends well into the finish. Very energetic and pure. 87-88. (1581 views)|
| ||Tasted by Traxx on 2/15/2013: Drinking quite well, more restrained acidity and greater richness than many 07s I've had in the last year. No rush, but also nothing wrong with getting into these now. (1667 views)|
| ||Tasted by massar on 5/9/2012 & rated 89 points: Drank this along side the '07 Les Noirots and this was considered the table favorite. Pale red color. Understated nose. Nice and round on the palate with hints of chocolate along side ripe cherry. Just a touch of tartness on the backend, but stood up nicely to food and was just as pleasant to sip after the meal.

| ||Tasted by Erik12903 on 8/1/2010 & rated 88 points: Straight out of the bottle, there is some tepid sweet red fruit, a hint of licorice, but more acidity than flavor on the mid palate. Thin and primary. A decent wine but nothing more.|
Second night, there is beautiful complexity on the nose, with a clear dried and fresh cherry flavor wafting through the air. Finish is still not long, but the texture of the wine is now more silky than merely acidic and hollow. Agree with other TNs, this is chambolle and it is 2007 and thus very much about the aromatics. I don't think I would go back for more though; not at USD 45-55 price range at least. (2846 views)
| ||Tasted by Sky King on 4/3/2010 & rated 90 points: A delicious, beautiful 2007. Needs approximately 2-3 hours of aeration to fully blossom. The color is somewhat typical 2007 which is to say somewhat light. No bother, the aromatics here are flat out beautiful, just lovely. The seductiveness of a good Chambolle is here and it is captivating. Somewhat regretfully, the same excellence does not completely transfer to the wines' impression in the mouth, but hey...it's a 2007 and this is a vintage about grace and delicateness. Nevertheless, the wine is delicious, with admirable fullness and completeness across the mid-palate and into the semi-short finish. A very enjoyable bottle which I went back for more of based upon the sheer pleasure of the aromatics. Probably a wine best to enjoy in the next 4-6 years. (1881 views)|
Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

Côte de Nuits on weinlagen.info
Chambolle-Musigny 1er CruChambolle-Musigny is one of the smallest appellations of the Côte de Nuits, although given the tiny, fragmented nature of Burgundy vineyards, it manages to fit two exceptional Grand Crus (Bonnes Mares and Le Musigny) and a couple of dozen Premieres Crus. These wines are known for delicacy and tend to be light in body, but concentrated and with fragrent bouquets. The critic Robert M. Parker Jr. quotes French poet Gaston Roupnel as likening the region's wines to "silk and lace."
Di Giancarlo marino: comunque. Les Noirottes è un cru situato quasi al centro di Chambolle, subito ad est di Bonnes Mares, ed è confinante tra gli altri con i 1er cru Les Baudes (segnalo quello di H. Lignier), Les Sentieres (segnalo quello di R. Groffier), e aux Beaux Bruns (molto citato dalla stampa quello di D. Mortet, io preferisco quello di Ghislaine Barthod). Pur essendo ben situato, questo 1er cru non mi risulta aver mai dato vini di particolare pregio. Per chi ama e cerca lo "spirito" vero di Chambolle, oltre allo scontato Les Amoureuses (notevoli quelli di De Vogue, Roumier, Groffier, Amiot-Servelle...) ed a quelli già citati, consiglio Les Cras di G. Roumier e Ghislaine Barthod, Derrier la Grange di Amiot-Servelle, Haut Doix di Groffier. Volendo scegliere tra i Village, sono tutti buoni quelli di Groffier, Ghislaine Barthod e Roumier, produttori che eccellono regolarmente anche nelle denominazioni minori. Volendo parlare di Chambolle, occorrerà prima o poi dire qualcosa anche dei grand cru: la mia passione per i Bonnes Mares è nota ai miei amichetti sciagattati.
