The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru is a big step up from the Chambolle villages in this vintage. Bright red berries, flowers and spices are supported by vibrant layers of underlying minerality. I very much like the energy and focus here. The wine turns darker and richer with time in the glass. Hints of plum and black cherry linger on the structured finish. This is a 2009 that will need at least a few more years in bottle. The 1er Cru is made from young vines in Musigny.
