1983 Chambolle-Musigny, Derrière la Grange 1er Cru, Collection Bellenum

Sold Out

A really interesting wine from this controversial vintage, from which many wines fell apart very early on. The colour is not especially bright or clear, but it does not seem to matter because there is an amazing energy to the fruit whether tasted directly from the bottle or after decanting. Stand this up well in advance and pour gently, then expect to be thrilled by the complex range of brisk red fruit flavours which have been kept fresh by the mix of acidity and tannin. This may continue in the same vein for years to come.
