2018 Philippe Pacalet Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy, FRANCE. 750ml
There are a lot of winemakers people like to call “legendary", Philippe Pacalet has become one such winemaker, but his fame was earned not only for his skills in the cellar. It is because he is one of the strongest living links to two of the most seminal figures in artisanal French winemaking: Jules Chauvet, and Marcel Lapierre.
100% whole bunch. Bottled.
Mid cherry red. Pretty red-cherry fruit and a nice touch of stone dust. Succulent, pure and lovely freshness. Excellent balance and length. Tannins are fine but definite. Dry and juicy at the same time with a light stemmy freshness on the finish. (JH) 17/20
