La Lumière Noire: 2019 Burgundy – Côte de Nuits (Dec 2020)

The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Combottes 1er Cru contains around 55–60% whole bunch this year. The almost crystalline bouquet of shimmering blackberry and blueberry fruit is laced with crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful grip on the entry, a fine bead of acidity and a structured, slightly tarry finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent.
