Domaine Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny “Les Hauts Doix” Premier Cru 2017

"The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Hauts Doix 1er Cru comes from 70-year-old vines, including 50% whole bunches, matured in 25% new oak. This has a very floral bouquet, already open and welcoming, with pressed rose petals infusing, almost dictating, the vibrant red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy red fruit. Not a light Chambolle-Musigny per se, yet nimble and light on its toes, with an unprepossessing, detailed, tart finish and a dash of white pepper on the aftertaste. This will probably drink earlier than Groffier’s other 2017s but should still offer 15 years of drinking pleasure." - Neal Martin, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Domaine Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny “Les Sentiers” Premier Cru 2017

"The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Sentiers 1er Cru comes from a parcel of 80-year-old vines, containing 25% whole bunch fruit and matured in 75% new oak. The bouquet is completely different from Les Hauts Doix, displaying more density, darker fruit, more substance and a less airy style, but still very pure and detailed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is plenty of lightly spiced black fruit, gentle grip, an appealing sense of symmetry and a longer tail on the finish than the Les Haut Doix. Superb." - Neal Martin, Antonio Galloni's Vinous
