    Other Reviews....
    Aromas of cherries, raspberries, sweet spices, orange rind and peony preface the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Gruenchers, a medium to full-bodied wine that was also quite firm and structured on my visit chez Dujac, displaying plenty of succulent, fragrant fruit behind its youthfully muscular chassis of tannin. Again, there's a lot of potential here, but patience will be required.

    The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Les Gruenchers 1er Cru has a very complex bouquet of black cherry and raspberry plus touches of clove and thyme; there is something effortless about these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy tannins, a superb line of acidity and a palpable marine influence on the vivid, energetic finish. Superb.

    A really pretty nose is strikingly perfumed with its notes of ripe black cherry, spiced plum, violet and rose petal. The sleek and again almost painfully intense flavors though the mildly warm finish is again dusty, austere and a bit coarse. This too may harmonize in time though it's a sufficiently open question that my projected range is a bit wider than usual.

    Fine fresh purple, Jeremy thinks picked too late but it does not smell excessive. It is certainly plump and juicy but the whole bunch has freshened up the finish. More oak at the back.
