Wine Critic Reviews for 2015 Pousse D'Or Chambolle Musigny Les Charmes

(Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Chambolle-Musigny "Les Charmes" 1er Cru Red) An exuberantly spicy nose offers up a lovely array of dark cherry, raspberry, tea, violet, lilac and a whisper of sandalwood. The suave and highly seductive medium-bodied flavors possess an opulent mouth feel thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract and for a moment the palate impression is almost soft and then the structure arrives with a rush on the firm, moderately austere and built-to-age finale. This is very impressive though again I would describe it as atypical in the context of one usually finds with a classic Charmes. (Drink starting 2030)

The 2015 Chambolle Musigny les Charmes 1er Cru has a more refined and detailed bouquet than some of the other premier crus from La Pousse d'Or: blueberry and touch of cassis, wilted violet and a light mineral undertow. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a little rigid at the moment, but there is decent weight and presence on the finish. It will need 5-7 years in bottle before those tannins mellow.

Robert Parker Neal Martin | 90-92 RP-NM
Bright medium ruby. Much sexier and more expressive on the nose than the Chambolle villages, offering high-pitched scents of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. Not a particularly fleshy wine but offers noteworthy mineral verve to its blackberry and violet flavors and has more material to support its dusty tannins. Considerably deeper, longer and more complex than the basic village offering, with solid mineral-driven acidity giving it very good balance.

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.
