Antonio Galloni(2012 Vintage) Dark red cherry, plum and spice notes flesh out in the 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Echanges. Beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2012 is a bit richer and fatter than the wines Jean-Marie Fourrier makes under his domaine label, but all the elements are in the right place. Above all else, the 2012 Echanges is immediate, racy and drop-dead gorgeous. Fourrier adds that the Echanges is a bit bigger than his own wines because the grower deleafed and Fourrier did not. Regardless, this is a fabulous wine.
Burghound(2014 Vintage) "Here too there is just enough wood to notice on the pretty nose that combines notes of plum, violet, spice and red currant. There is excellent intensity to the relatively generous medium weight flavors where the underlying minerality adds a sense of lift to the dusty, complex and well-balanced finale. This is textbook Gruenchers which is to say a Chambolle of volume and richness if not necessarily the exceptional refinement of the finest vineyards."
