Top Chambolle-Musigny 2020 en primeur wines

A round-up of the best Chambolle-Musigny 2020 wines with Charles Curtis MW finding particularly good quality in the premier crus Les Fuées, Les Cras and La Combe d’Orveau.

In Chambolle, Christophe Roumier was pleased with his results: ‘The surprise of the vintage is the freshness of the wines. The village-level Chambolle suffered in 2020 due to the lack of water, but the old vines not as much. There was less alcohol in 2020 than in 2018, and more complexity than 2019.’

It was, above all, important to vinify carefully.

As Charles van Canneyt of Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat put it: ‘We don’t want to make 2005 all over again’, referring to the hard tannins of that vintage.

Away from the grand crus, it is a great year for the premier crus Les Fuées, Les Cras and La Combe d’Orveau.
