  • As others have noted this is very Chambolle in style.
    Lots of petit fruit rouge, red forest berries that is. Chambolle violets. Slight hints of dill, greenness. Light and airy.
    On the palate it is all about cranberries, high but soft acids and moderate but slightly coarse tannins. There is not enough dry extract (as per Allen Meadows) and the overall impression of the wine is slightly watery and thin.
    Whether it has room for improvement and will improve is an open question, but there is no denying it is a textbook example of mid-level village wine from Chambolle- Musigny.

  • Fantastic bottle. Pure silk and lace with ample backbone. Very Chambolle in character.

  • Typical Bertheau in the sense that this has an airy profile with high-toned red-toned fruit and stony backbone and shows plenty of Chambolle character. Sharply acidic, very "2013". Ancillary notes of violet, ginger and beetroot. The acidity is slightly jarring on day 1.

    Update: Day 2 - the sharpness has rounded out considerably and is showing forward beetroot and violet tones on top of red fruit and a typical Chambole base. Much improved and very good!

  • 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Village Tasting (Extra Space): Tasted blind. 2013 Chambolle Village Tasting.
    Appearance is clear, pale intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium intensity, with aromas of airy earth inflected damp stones minerality, dark moist earth, red cherries, strawberry, hint of ripe bramble stems. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, soft and smooth medium- tannins, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of bright red cherries, freshly picked strawberries, earth. Medium+ finish.
    Good quality Chambolle Village. I like the nose and the smooth mouth-feel here. The fruit profile on the palate just somewhat shy at the moment. Conservative score for now, this should improve with a few more years of age.
    Guessing probably the Bertheau Chambolle if it was placed in this first flight. Has that light airy red fruit feel.

  • I have a few bottles of this, so I thought I'd come back to it tonight. The brownish, slightly muddy color hasn't changed; it's developing a nice bouquet, the black fruit - almost Merlot-esque - is accented with a fine cave aroma, damp stone and perhaps a hint of mushroom.

    The wine is still potently acidic and alcoholic on the tongue; the effect is not unlike a Lemonhead candy, or a Sour Patch kid, although there is no sweetness, just a citric sourness. There is no detectable lactate, and I wonder if maybe the malolactic was omitted. The finish is pleasant, a bit of tannic structure and an unusual minty note.

    The wine is not vinified properly, but it has its charms. Too bad!
