Bourgogne Aujourd'hui Tasting

At the pantheon of tastings ?

This is an assumption coming directly from the said review after the tasting of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages whose results have recently been unveiled. In all modesty, with great pride, we share the praise of our wines: 

Chambolle-Musigny Les Bussières 2015 - 19,5
If perfection exists in the world of the chambolle-musigny villages, then we approach it with this wonder. A wine with the intense, brilliant color, with the powerful, refined and precise aromas of black fruits and flowers. Palate of a fantastic opulence, generous with flavors of black cherries, spices and a perfect balance!

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers 2015 - 19
Will we soon see again a vintage like 2015? Who knows! The fact remains that the equation 2015 + great terroir of Sentiers + excellent domaine Sigaut = a monumental bottle, opulent, with velvet tannins, cherry, refined and of an exceptional length.

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers 2016 - 17,5  
Superb "black" color. Powerful, clean, complex aromas of ripe cherries. Juicy palate, concentrated, dense, long and harmonious.

Chambolle-Musigny Les Bussières 2016 - 17
Sumptuous aromas of black cherries, blackberries, with a noble woody-licorice. Palate consistent, full, coated, precise and long. Superb village!

Chambolle-Musigny 2016 - 17
Black color, at the level of 2015 in intensity and brightness. Deep aromas, noble fresh black fruits, sweet spices ... Juicy palate, rich, with sensations of crunchy cherries, "sweet", tasty, just picked on the tree.

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chatelots 2015 - 17
Pleasant aromas of black cherry jam, spices, flowers ... Mellow, velvety palate, with a precise and elegant finish.

Chambolle-Musigny 2015 - 16,5
Rich, intense aromas of black fruits, with notes of licorice, roasted ... Palate full of fruit, crisp, pure and of a good length.

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Groseilles 2014 - 16,5
We change the register with the 2014 vintage, more classic. Fresh aromas of red and black fruits, cocoa, roasting. Palate dense, fleshy, precise, with a beautiful mineral finish.

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers 2014 - 16,5
Intense, brilliant color. Deep aromas of black fruits, spices ... Beautiful structure for a 2014: fleshy, dense, pure and balanced. Very good aging potential!
