2008 Taupenot-Merme, Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'OrveauxApr. 2010
Virginie must ahve mentioned at least 3 times that these vines are next to Musigny ;-) Understated dark fruit with a very pretty herbal dimension. Fine tannin. Narrow, linear, intense character. Balanced and displaying his is a honey of a wine – and did you know it’s very close to Musigny…
2005 Perrot-Minot Christophe, Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'OrveauxNov. 2007
A dark and brooding, indeed menacing nose with a high-toned mineral edge – wow! A deep and concentrated but very fine package – this is an absolute beauty. Whatever it costs, it’s probably worth it – a top 10 wine for me this year.
2001 Clavelier Bruno, Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'OrveauxMar. 2003
Medium-plus cherry colour. Pronounced fruity nose coupled with sweet well integrated oak. Good tannin and acidity. Lots of volume. Best wine so far.
