It would be really fun to tiptoe through the minefields of Burgandy if it didn't cost you $$ every time you stepped on a stinker like I did with the previous bottle from Louis Latour. Fortunately, Nicolas Potel pulled through with this very nice Chambolle-Musigny. Nose is a little funky with a bit of a barnyard seasoning mixed with some tart cherry. Flavors are nicely complex with a mix of wet soil (at least what I think wet soil would taste like) and some ripe fruits with a slightly green edge that may come from whole cluster fermentation? Can't say for sure on that one but it does seem that way. Overall a decent Burgundy for a pretty fair price.
