Amiot-Servelle has great holdings in Chambolle-Musigny, including some lovely village plots and vines in Les Charmes and Les Amoureuses. (not to mention Clos St. Denis). We recently had the chance to taste some ‘13s, ‘14s and as-yet-unreleased 2015s.
Our lesson? The Domaine is doing great work! The wines are fresh and pure with beautiful fruit and terroir-specific aromatics.
Their plot of Bourgogne Rouge is just across the RN from the heart of Chambolle-Musigny. It has seductive aromatics that, like all great baby-Chambolles, hint at the village’s classic perfume and elegance. But the soils are deeper and the wine is already a pleasure to drink, more fruit-focused than the village wine with charmingly rustic tannins and lovely transparency.
The Bourgogne Blanc is at the southern end of the appellation. It has that wonderful 2014 white burg balance of great fruit and fine, fresh structure. Burghound wrote, “there is good freshness to the delicious, round and saline-inflected flavors.”
These are delicious now but will improve with a little bottle age. We will drink some now but save a few to drink over the next few years, and to encourage you to do the same.
