Wine Advocate 89 points - As usual the ?young,? that is to say under 25-year-old Musigny vines, find themselves within the 2011 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru. There is a pastille-like purity on the nose with hints of blueberry, raspberry and salted licorice that gains intensity with aeration. The palate is sinewy on the entry with more black than red fruit profile. There is a sorbet-like freshness with fresh tannins, hints of licorice with fine tension on the finish that does not quite have the persistency of a top vintage. Drink 2014-2020. (Aug 2013)
Despite owning portions of Les Baudes and Les Fuées in addition to their holding in Amoureuses, there is actually no premier cru wine in these bottles, only the declassified juice from the young (under 25 years) Musigny vines - Musigny in short trousers as the domaine likes to call it. The first outing for this wine was the 1995 vintage - before this time quite a lot of juice was sold to the negociants. Today there are about 2.8 hectares of these young vines, producing around 500 cases of Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru per year.
