Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle Musigny aux Combottes 2020

  • v89-91


Available for:
Barthod owns an ultra-tiny slice of this premier cru which lies in the center of the appellation-in fact, it accounts for the smallest volume of wine among all her traditionally bottled holdings. While "Aux Combottes" may lack the intense, penetrating minerality or the breathtaking poise of the greatest crus in the village, it offers a prettiness that is very Chambolle.
  • v89-91

There are just two barrels of the 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Aux Combottes ler Cru this year. Pretty blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit laced with sous-bois unfurl on the nose, though it is not intense. The mineral component becomes more accentuated with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit on the entry. There is just a touch of greenness here, just around the edges, a hint of bell pepper towards the finish. This is one that I would drink earlier than others as it just needs more substance on the finish. Maybe that will develop during the remainder of its barrel maturation? We will see. If so, I will dutifully raise my prudent score.
