This is one that I think shouldn’t be missed, as fantastic and relatively affordable Chambolle is getting increasingly hard to come by. I’m always a big fan of single parcel villages level bottlings that punch above their station, and this bottling is ringing my bell….from just below the 1er crus Haut Doix and les Amoureuses, this is a bottling that the Amiots had bottled separately in the past, but only resumed doing so in 2018. I think that this is a 6pk/case buy, if overacheiving Chambolle sounds good to you…….
“(a villages level vineyard; 20% whole clusters). Perceptible wood influence can be found on the cooler and spicier nose of various red and dark berries along with a hint of cinnamon tea. There is very good volume and most obvious minerality on the lingering finale that is shaped by slightly finer but firmer tannins. This is lovely and very Chambolle though a wine that will need at least some patience first.

“The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Bas Doix comes from one hectare of vines that was bottled separately up until 2009, when the domaine did not have sufficient vats, and finally reintroduced in 2018. Matured with 20% whole bunch and the same new oak, it has a well-defined bouquet of blackberry, bilberry and saline notes. Shows good grip and density for a Village Cru and delivers lovely black pepper notes on the confident finish.” 91 Neil Martin
