Lignier-Michot Chambolle Musigny 'Vieilles Vignes' 2019
The CM VV 19 is from 2 micro parcels (Les Drazey and Les Gamaires) below Bonnes Mares planted in the 1950’s and 1960’s. A deep rich and generous Chambolle of great finesse and class.
87-89 points Vinous Media, Neal Martin ”The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes contains 80% whole bunches this year. It shows a little sur-maturité on the nose with touches of tinned prune and California raisin tincturing the black fruit. The palate is more balanced with a sweet core of candied black cherry fruit intermixed with cracked black pepper and clove. That nose just needs to forage a little more restraint by the time it is bottled and then it will merit a higher score.
88-91 points Burghound "(from 50+ year old vines in Les Drazey and Gamaires; 80% whole cluster). A much less expressive nose reluctantly offers up pretty floral and ripe aromas of plum liqueur and various dark berries. The delicious medium weight flavors possess a caressing, indeed almost creamy mid-palate, that is highly seductive, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, mineral-driven and refreshing finale. This is lovely and worth considering."
91-93 points, Jasper Morris MW "70% whole bunch. The grapes come from Les Drazey and Gamaires. Complete ripe purple. The nose is not giving much, dense tight dark fruit with good acidity. The tannins are present but in balance with the fruit, dark red fruit, decent length."
