    November 23, 2021 - Drank over 2 nights - dare I say that it is finally opening up?

    July 10, 2021 - 7 years since I last tasted one of these - not sure it has budged much!
    Very deep ripe black cherry nose with earth, minerals and mint. With time a lovely mushroomy secondary note. Full mid-palate and lots of intensity and energy, with a long and grippy finish.
    After many years of being dumb this has become really terrific but it seems to be on a plateau and will only get better for a while.

    March 25, 2021 - Chambolle 1er Blends (Chicago + Zoom): Full and deep nose with earthy, herby black cherry. Still very young and fresh (served blind to friends and they believed it was younger than 2012). I think the concentration and youthfulness cloaks the emerging complexity of earth, mineral and dried florals that will pop as the fruit continues to mature and soften. Plenty of balanced stuffing to go another 10+ years.

    March 25, 2021 - Chambolle-Musigny "Declassified" 1er Cru Tasting (Chicagoland IL): This wine kept getting better and better with more air. There is nothing subtle here, this powerful wine shows so much rich/ ripe red cherry and berry with faint meat notes. Still some awkward tannins, still some fat fruit, but overall so much here. I would also point out that in a 12/07/99 flight, many thought this 1999 the youngest wine when blind. A wine I'd be thrilled to have in my cellar.

    December 11, 2020 - Very pretty crystalline red cherries, lots of acid, very fine tannins. Puts on weight with air, but never gets past medium-bodied. This vineyard is sometimes considered a baby Musigny due to its proximity but this wine doesn't have anything like grand cru power or intensity, especially in a big vintage like 99. Still is a very nice Chamoblle 1er.
