2004 Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers 
9/10
GRACEFUL 

Complex Premier Cru red from cool Burgundian climate Spicy, ripe, perfumed and almost airy nose combines seductively ripe crushed red and black fruit aromas.

Decent floral nose with loads of dark cherries, didn’t nose like a big nor structured wine, I said ok to myself which I don’t prefer structured burgundy too much, ok once in a while. A sip and I was right, this ain’t a structured wine. However, I still decanted half the bottle as I feel the acidity is elevated and it requires some air to mellow it. I was right, in less than 15 min this wine is singing mellow tones, and far more approachable than my initial sip.
Graceful and semi soft style.

1er Cru Clos De la Mouchere 

9.75/10
VICTORY 


A Premier Cru, Côte de Beaune,
Puligny-Montrachet Village, an enclosure within Les PerrièresOur objective here in the blind tasting is to find out the gem of this region and whether it was universally agreed on the producer label. Les Perrieres was a large and quality plot in Puligny Montrachet, thus a worth while exploration.

Obviously Clos de la Mouchere, a Monopole plot within Perrieres highly deserved the #1 position in this battle. It’s certainly much more disciplined, didn’t show it’s charm till 30mins later. I was aptly fooled initially, but did notice the evolution.
