    Is this really 'only' a village wine? It certainly tastes like something more refined than that, partly perhaps because of the overwhelming proportion of 70-year-old vines in the Cathiards' parcel. Layered, concentrated and quite rich for a Chambolle, it has stylish 50% new wood, plenty of colour and texture, abundant fruit sweetness and a stony, chalky finish.

    Aromas of ripe cherries and blackberries, complemented by notions of rose petals, violets and musky spices preface the 2018 Chambolle Musigny Clos de l'Orme, a medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered wine that's multidimensional, concentration and gourmand while remaining lively and beautifully defined. This is an exquisite Chambolle.

    Moderately firm reduction presently blocks an evaluation of the nose. Otherwise there is good intensity and salinity to the sleekly textured and beautifully well-detailed flavors that display excellent length on the firm, focused and youthfully austere finish. Patience strongly suggested.
