WTN: Barthod

by Patchen Markell » Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:40 am

Ghislaine Barthod 2001 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées. One of two bottles purchased on release, the other's long gone, and, as I recall, was disappointingly inexpressive. Did we pick the right time? We did. Pure, silken red fruit, intense yet delicate, with a half-pretty, half-earthy aromatic aura radiating outward from a deep core of minerality. Not showy, not yuge, but moderately scaled and totally satisfying.
cheers, Patchen

Nice. I only have a few Bertheau, and they are sleeping.

Bertheau? Non sequitur or autocorrect glitch?

Well I have Barthod as well, so it’s no matter.

The mistake is (like my Boillot error earlier in the week due to the sleep challenges of trans-Atlantic business travel.

I’ll take jet lag over autocorrect glitches any day. Sleep well! :D
cheers, Patchen
