I’m hoping that the remnants of this one will taste a little better tonight…
2001 Fourrier, Chambolle-Musigny Gruenchers
Medium-pale ruby-red colour. The nose starts out a little dark and chocolatey; time takes away the darker elements to be replaced with slightly volatile, high-toned estery notes and a faint core of tight red fruit – not so appealing. The palate has good texture and mouthwatering acidity. The intensity belies the colour and the finish is quite long but rather metallic. On day one I have to say that I’m a little disappointed.
Day two the nose is a little more estery and the palate remains consistent. Disappointing – Rebuy – No
