The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Les Sentiers 1er Cru is backward on the nose, some reduction here that is suppressing the fruit (a common trait it seems within the appellation.) The reduction follows through on the palate, which is a shame because it feels as if there is some pleasant fleshy red fruit underneath. But, it lacks freshness and feels a bit soft ‘n squishy on the finish. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2018 red tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2033
