Here the nose is slightly more elegant and certainly finer with an equally high-toned red berry and cherry fruit-infused nose that complements the supple and round yet detailed, indeed almost delicate flavors that coat the mouth on the lacy and pure finish. This is not overly complex or concentrated but the mouth feel is striking.

Barthod’s 2006 Chambolle-Musigny Les Chatelots – last tasted from a sample of barrels – leads with fresh red raspberry, wreathed in subtle, hard-to-identify floral perfume. Flatteringly refined in texture and generously juicy, it combines meat broth, chalk, and salt undertones for another truly lip-smacking performance, finishing with transparency and lift. Even a sample from new barrel was uniformly and lusciously fruit and mineral dominated, although Barthod indicated that this cru was late to digest its wood.
