Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Les Noirots” 2009, Bruno Clavelier
Chambolle is famed as the Burgundy village for women, more so even than Volnay. The saying goes "Chambolle for women, Saint-Emilion for women". Not the most insightful saying I admit. This Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru is floral, with raspberry lane aromas, violets, pivoine, fleur de thyme. Very representative of the bio-dynamic Clavelier style which is high-toned and promises intriguing aromatic combinations after 5 years in bottle. Sapidité, lively, strong lines of acidity and tannin. A right wriggly number. I suspect this style is too eccentric for imbibers of négociant wines from the likes of Latour and Jadot.
