Domaine Ghislaine Barthod, Chambolle-Musigny 1999

Rosenthal Wine Merchant, New York NY.

Fifteen years on.

Ruby.  Its ostensibly ‘ordinary’ Chambolle material occupies an ether.  Articulate without being too precious.  English roses, woodland raspberries with an ozone-y wet-forest tang, its melodies and blossoming charged with a gentle force.  A wine for the jubilee, a village no less!  Now – 2030+.
