Chambolle-Musigny "CLOS LE VILLAGE" 2011 MAGNUM - Domaine Felettig
The Chambolle-Musigny is a red wine often described as the most "feminine" of the Côte de Nuits. The intensity and finesse express themselves indeed with elegant subtlety. Under a bright ruby, crowned with bright and light reflections. It may darken slightly, keeping all its brilliance. Violet, red berries (strawberry, raspberry) make up its bouquet of marked typicality. Older, he evolves towards spicy ripe fruit, prune, or towards the nose, undergrowth and animals. Rich, complex aroma and complex, it coats the palate with silk and lace. Its fleshy delicacy does not prevent to maintain a strong and durable structure. Quite soft, worn on little acidity, tannins still caressing. The wines are wines Felettig field apart. They combine exceptional finesse and a complete structure. To discover.

2011 in Burgundy, is a relatively early vintage. The vine pushed smoothly until June, with almost three weeks early due to a particularly hot spring. In July, with the freshness and rain, the cycle has slowed, but sets out again in August, milder months. In the end, the wines do not lack wealth, but it is the delicacy of the tannins (for red) that makes the charm of the vintage, and low acidity makes them supple wines. The tannins are silky, pleasant fruit wines but sometimes lack a bit of ""pep"" and as they are already very pleasant we think probably not at a very high guard. The de-nights-ribs well with the character typed but already pleasant to taste the fruit. Fairly fine material but that one should not spoil by too supported farms. In side-de-Beaune, the reds are also fruity and pleasant, with less structure in 2010 or 2009, but an easy character quite nice. The southern part (Volnay, Pommard) seems more successful than the northern part. The whites are of a style rather digestible and fresh, easy at first, but sometimes lack a little depth.
