Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Hauts Doix (0.75 L)
WA Tasted blind at the annual ”Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Haut-Doix from Nicolas Groffier has a disjointed nose that feels rather under-ripe, more vegetal than leafy. The palate is much more promising. Sure, it is on the lean side at first, but it sorts itself out in the glass and puts on the weight and fleshy it needs. There is an elegance to this Hauts Doix, though I think Nicolas will conjure much better examples in future years.
