Domaine Dujac, Chambolle-Musigny, Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru,

Domaine Faiveley, Chambolle-Musigny, Musigny Grand Cru, 2015

Domaine Faiveley, Chambolle-Musigny, Musigny Grand Cru, 2015

Only 160 bottles made. A flamboyant nose with rich cherry fruit, a hint of mocha as well as lurking red fruits. Very rich, with a full-bodied, super-concentrated and spicy palate displaying great power. A stupendous wine even if not classic Musigny. Majestic and sumptuous, with a very long finish.

A sumptuous cherry nose, seductive and generous. The attack is lean yet opulent and silky. It certainly has ample firm tannins, but there's a freshness and lightness of touch too. Super-concentrated and built to last. Very long finish.
