2018 Burgundy saw extreme heat, lack of rainfall, and struggling vines that produced concentrated fruit; all of which points to one of Burgundy’s greatest vintages. To top it off there was no hail in 2018 so the crop is large along with the wine being outstanding. This will be a vintage to load up on.
Finesse and elegance is what earned the Chambolle-Musigny region the nickname “Volnay of the Côte de Nuits". The lack of top soil in the region forces vines to dig deep and limits cluster size on the vine, which in turn helps to develop of more balance wine.
Silky and exuding violet, blackberry and black currant, this red is about as alluring as a young Burgundy gets. It firms up on the finish with refined, cocoa powder tannins. Vibrant and long too. Drink now through 2028.
