Philippe Pacalet, Chambolle Musigny 1er cru 2006

The Chambolle 1er cru 2006 from Philippe Pacalet is open and ready to rock. In the bouquet sous bois, strawberries, gooseberries with a hint of tar. On the palate rich and quite loosely knit fruit – good body and length. It’s very organic and expressive and typical for the vintage i.e. lacking bit of focus in the fruit. Bottom line – quite lovely now – but not very focused and a bit mellow in the fruit like many reds from 06. Nevertheless – very enjoyable.
