Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Chambolle Musigny Les Fuées 2016

SKU 11418


This terroir has one of the stronger personalities of the Chambolle-Musigny Premier Crus. Its bouquet is less floral than the other parts of the village; instead it has a more mineral nuance, more "earthy" than the Chambolle "Village" appellation or Les Amoureuses. The aromatic base note is that of blackberries and blueberries. In the mouth it is well structured, full and rich, the "attack" is very straightforward.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées is stunning, unfurling in the glass with sweet fruit tones of cherries and raspberries that mingle with fragrant top-notes of violet and blood orange, complemented by more savory nuances of espresso and grilled squab. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with an incredibly deep, concentrated core of fruit that verges on unctuous yet remains elegantly weightless, concluding with a long, floral and mouthwateringly saline finish. This is a masterclass in intensity without extraction, and it will be worth any effort to secure a few bottles.
