    Chambolle Musigny 1996
    Les Beaux Bruns, D. Mortet
    Bottle (1)

    "(opened from personal storage). There is obvious secondary development yet the overall impression of the red berry fruit, spice and earth suffused aromas is one of freshness and elegance. There is good punch to the well-detailed, intense and ever-so-slightly mineral-driven middle weight flavors that terminate with just a trace of '96 style acidity. Note however that the sense of acidity progressively diminished as the wine sat in the glass, which I found interesting since it is often the reverse, e.g. the acidity becomes progressively more insistent. In sum, this is an utterly delicious effort that has now arrived at the front edge of its maturity. Tasted several times over the years but this is the first time since 2002. Note that one bottled had serious reduction issues and was, in my view, undrinkable." (90 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Sept. 2013)
