Domaine Ghislaine Barthod, Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru 1995

Barthod Chambolle Cras 1995

Rosenthal Wine Merchant, New York NY.

Twenty years on.

Carmine. Sleek in style, taffeta in texture but not too stylized: in her heart she is comme il faut.  Sève, bursting with flavor without skimping on the details, her intimations run to peony, woodland strawberry, wood ear mushroom.  Tannins are forward, civilized.  The finish is lively and distinct, a mineral wine above all.  Still a bright future ahead.  Now – 2020+.
