Joseph Drouhin Chambolle Musigny 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chambolle-Musigny|
The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village wafts from the glass with scents of jammy red berries and cherries mingled with scents of dark chocolate and woodsmoke. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and fleshy, it's richer and more structured than its 2017 counterpart.
The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village is just missing the intensity of Drouhin's other Village Crus on the nose, coming across rather reticent and sultry. The pliant, generous palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and fig-tinged red fruit, although it just misses a little grip on the finish compared to its peers.
