Tasting Notes Domaine Ghislaine Barthod by Neal Martin

Posted on Posted in Domaine Ghislaine Barthod

2015 Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes 1er Cru
The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes 1er Cru shows a little stem addition on the fresh, detailed nose, which is earthier than those of its appellation peers and acquires graphite and tobacco scents with aeration. The palate is well-balanced, displaying good backbone and fine acidity, but tight and backward at the moment, and missing a little charm. I am sure that will evolve with continued bottle age, so cellar this for another 5 to 7 years. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

2015 Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru
The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru has a very detailed, mineral-driven bouquet of pure raspberry and wild strawberry scents; a touch of pressed flowers emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin but a little tight at the moment, and the new oak needs time to integrate. There is good substance here, but it doesn’t quite deliver the charm, though I suspect in this case the wine is entering a shut-down phase. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

2015 Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées 1er Cru
The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées 1er Cru has a gorgeous, seductive, pure bouquet that epitomizes everything there is to love about a premier cru from this appellation. The aromatics… you almost want to smooch with them to a Lionel Richie ballad. The beautifully balanced palate presents filigreed tannin, perfectly pitched acidity and good substance, and hints of graphite surface toward the pixelated finish of this brilliant Chambolle-Musigny from Ghislaine-Barthod. Stunning. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
