Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras 2006
VM92+: Medium red. Cooler aromas of raspberry, menthol and flowers, plus a hint of cherry pit. Suave on entry, then silky but reticent in the middle palate, with a medicinal reserve to its dark berry flavors. Began rather compact but opened with air to show sweet red fruit flavors and captivating sappy energy. The firm tannins coat the incisors on the very long, vibrant finish. This should gain in flesh with six to eight years of bottle aging.
