alex gambal’s 2010 chambolle les charmes



2010 Alex Gambal, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Charmes
A wine that was finished all too quick – though that’s a good sign! The first notes had just a hint of reduction, but less than 10 minutes after opening, those notes were gone. What remained in the glass was just a little more about barrel than vineyard I felt, but it was a pretty, spicy impression with just an undercurrent of fruit – only the last drops in the glass delivered a beautiful acid-cherry note. In the mouth, this is little more than a middle-weight, but one with plenty of complexity and interest – again there seems to be many barrel references, but there is an innate and captivating balance and grace to this wine – such a shame I couldn’t save any for further appraisal on day 2 – it was too delicious!
Rebuy – Yes
