Domaine Ghislaine Barthod, Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru 1999

Rosenthal Wine Merchant, New York NY.

Twenty years on.

Ruby. If mineral can be delicious, then here it is. A perfectly streamlined palate, an apex of berries and calcaire with notes of orchids now turning to baozhong tea. Quite firm really, especially underneath, but the impeccability of fruit dissuades you of this. Beguiling as ever, and another Barthod to celebrate the jubilee. Now – 2030+.
