Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2014 Musigny Grand Cru includes 100% whole cluster fruit and comprises of three barrels, one of them new and the others one- and two-years-old. It has a really lovely, sensual bouquet that is already very elegant and finessed with flint-tinged red cherry and wild strawberry fruit. It is just very very precise. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins with bitter cherry and a touch of spice, embroidered with life-affirming mineralité and a sense of precision on the finish that instantaneously informs you that you are in propitious terroir-tory. What a great Musigny from winemaker Pierre Vincent.

A spicy, elegant and wonderfully pure nose of essence of red and dark pinot fruit, earth and underbrush aromas displays a plethora of floral top notes. The equally pure, intense superbly detailed full-bodied flavors benefit from an abundance of palate soaking dry extract that serves to buffer the extremely firm tannic spine on the beautifully delineated and seamlessly well-balanced finish. This gorgeously refined and classy effort is ultra-serious and it's again completely clear that it's going to need an extended stay in a proper cellar.

(the only one of these 2014s that was vinified with 100% whole clusters): Healthy deep red. A note of smoky reduction to the deep aromas of raspberry, pepper and underbrush. Densely packed and extremely youthful, conveying remarkable vibrancy and definition to its fruit and soil flavors. Possesses even more body than the Bonnes-Mares but the latter wine may be more satisfying for the first 12 to 15 years. The Musigny's tight tannins will need a minimum of several years to soften, but the palate-dusting finishing minerality already gives the wine terrific lift and stimulates the taste buds. I was barely aware of the whole clusters here. This wine was slated to be bottled in March.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
