2018 Louis Jadot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru (4/22/2021)
The nose here is classic Chambolle with its transparent red fruit and perfume and hints of sweetened cranberry and raspberry. The evidence of the warm vintage is more on the midpalate through to the finish, as this wine starts off very similar to the nose with a light, red-fruited character, and then picks up a bit of a coffee note on the relatively full midpalate. Nevertheless, this is lifted nicely by the acidity and despite the coffee note and the overall fruity drinkability of this, it doesn't strike me as a wine from a torrid vintage. Sure, this isn't a wallflower but the quality here comports well with my belief that winemakers have adapted to the warm and hot vintages and are handling them far better than around the turn of the millennium.
