Louis Jadot 2005 Les Baudes Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $90
This is a wonderful wine, very ripe, the blackberry and sweet fruits all here, While the tannins are solid and concentrated, they are in the center of a lush, beautifully rich series of flavors that range from fruit to licorice to spice. The wine shows great aging potential.  — R.V.  (12/31/2010)

François Bertheau 2011 Les Amoureuses Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
This wine has great fruitiness, soft tannins and generous, ripe red fruits, while finishing dry. It’s a wine with the structure for aging while also packed with big red fruits. Keep for 4–6 years.  — R.V.  (8/1/2013)

Domaine Perrot-Minot 2010 La Combe d’Orveau Cuvée Ultra Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $320
Christophe Perrot-Minot makes this wine from a parcel of the vineyard that is declassified grand cru. It’s opulent and generous, yet it’s also minerally and fresh. The sumptuous Chambolle feel is still to come as the wine rounds out and loses its youthful tannins. Age for at least seven years.  — R.V.  (11/1/2012)

Joseph Drouhin 2008 Les Amoureuses Premier cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  1. $280
With its fine tannic structure, plum juice sweetness and beautifully ripe fruits, this is a wine that combines structure with a rich velvet coat. The acidity gives a fine lift, bringing out strawberries and a final piercing freshness.  — R.V.  (12/31/2010)

Louis Jadot 2006 Les Baudes Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  • Online Exclusive
Very firm, very straight—the severe side of Chambolle-Musigny. The tannins are dense, giving a wine that has a solid fruit structure, coffee and licorice flavors, very dark in character, concentrated.  — R.V.  (12/31/2010)

Domaine Bertagna 2000 Les Plantes Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $75
There is a fine balance on the nose between modern new wood aromas and pure raspberry fruits. On the palate, the wood is sweet and is nicely balanced with a helpling of chunky fruits and some elegant ripe flavors. Lovely acidity comes through toward the finish. This is a fine wine, both concentrated and yet elegant.  — R.V.  (11/1/2002)

Jean-Claude Boisset 2011 Les Charmes Premier cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $140
While soft and opulent initially, this wine reveals a structured, mineral character on the palate. Ripe red cherry and black plum flavors pair well with firm, dry tannins and hints of wood aging. This is an elegant wine that needs aging. Don’t drink before 2017.  — R.V.  (12/1/2013)

François Bertheau 2011 Les Charmes Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

The wine is certainly structured, but in this vintage it is more about bright fruits and acidity. It shines with black berries and dark plums, and it’s very ripe and full in the mouth. A dry core with great freshness at the end.  — R.V.  (8/1/2013)
