WTN: 2001 Drouhin Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru

by Jay Miller » Sat Apr 08, 2006 10:13 pm

Warm brambly underbush scents, unexpectedly dark and tannic at first. Quite impressive, but my initial reaction is that I'd love to taste this in 15 years.

With just a touch of air it becomes more refreshing, as the acidity comes to the fore then everything starts blossoming like a summer rose with that thrilling Burgundy bouquet (sorry Chris) which never fails to send a chill down my spine. After 10-15 minutes it starts to clamp down becoming stern and serious though with an impressive purity. Eventually it develops a very attractive crushed strawberry character. It's this beguiling changeability that first seduced me to Burgundy and this is a beautiful example of it.

I prefer this to the '02 and even the '99 which had been a particular favorite of mine.

Thanks for notes. Sounds like patience is in order for those of us with just one.

Jay, as you may see above, I've been enjoying a Chambolle-Musigny this week also--the 2002 Domaine Digioia-Royer C-M. Wish I could open a bottle like that more often!

Thanks for the note, Jay. We were thinking of the 2001 for Easter dinner -- looks like we need a better candidate.

Regards, Bob
