The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Les Clos de l’Orme offers superb quality for a village-level wine. One of the first wines to go through malolactic fermentation, the Clos de l’Orme is already very nicely put together. These 50-70 year-old vines confer richness and persistence, but there is also notable energy in the glass. Citrus-inflected overtones add brightness and exotic flair to the finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033

The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Clos de l’Orme has a fresh and lifted nose of raspberry preserve, maraschino, a hint of cola and sous-bois aromas that unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a rigid backbone that lends this a masculine, slightly aloof personality at the moment. It is nicely focused, but it needs to just let its hair down a little on the finish. It is perhaps just a little too reserved for a Chambolle.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026
