Les Cras is, unfailingly, the Everest of the Barthod offerings: imposing, elemental, and profound. The family owns a significant portion (0.86 hectares) of this premier cru which abuts Les Fuées to the south, on the same filet of the slope as Bonnes-Mares. Always intensely mineral-driven, ruggedly structured, and deeply powerful, "Les Cras" still manages to exemplify the graceful essence of Chambolle, offering both large-scale impact and ultra-fine detail.
  • v91-93

The 2021 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru has quite a stern nose, plenty of mineralite and terroir expression here, a mixture of red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly candied red fruit on the entry, brown spices, hints of liquorice towards the finish with fine persistence. Promising, though it needs to gain a little more weight.
