Another Saturday at Chevalier...Mostly Blind Rhone Varietals (Chevalier Fine Wines - Chicago IL): Popped-and-poured for the tasting group. Final 1/3 of the bottle taken home, revisited 8 hours late. Both bright and sweet red fruit with intense concentration for its "Villages" level, supplemented nicely by anise and allspice. Very good weight already for its level, with even better length. I do not intend to open my remaining 6-pack for at least five more years.

My understanding is that this includes the 1er Cru wine from les Plantes (as usual), but that all the wine from Combe d'Orveau was lost to the frost. So a couple of barrels of (younger vine?) Musigny were purportedly added to the mix.
