2005 Gérard Raphet Chambolle-Musigny- France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny (5/30/2009)
This was enjoyable right out of the gate. Aromas of strawberries, flowers and citrus. Sweet fruit and lots of acid. Almost seamless. Long finish. Not showing much complexity but so tasty. Comes across as slightly lean and delicate but if you pay attention to the middle you’ll get some dark ripe fruit. I don’t know if this will blossom into something more but it should age easily for 7-10 years. (91 pts.)
thanks for the TN - agree with you on this being a very good wine. I’ve read that Raphet has a “lighter” house style which lead me to think this would drink well early. A good value for under $40 as well!
I do have the bourgogne but I haven’t tried it yet. I actually don’t know where I put it but it is at one of my lockers Paid about $12 for it. I did have the Passetoutgrains which was a few bucks cheaper. Decent stuff for the price.
