Joseph Drohin Chambolle-Musigny amoureuses 2002

Burgundy, France. 13%

This still young Burgundy could perhaps be overlooked on a busy dinner table or with the wrong food.  But give it a bit of attention and it is quite a revelation.  Serious depth and controlled richness, considerable length.  The weave of acidity that runs right through is just enough to give the wine vinosity (remind you that it is made of fruit).  In no way syrupy or overly lavish.

It is very enjoyable now, but I don’t really have the experience to know what a Premier Cru in a good balanced vintage like this will become given another 3-6 years of age.  I suspect not an awful lot better, but as I say, I don’t know.
