Robert Parker 90-92
The 2014 Chambolle Musigny Clos de l’Orme appears to have more pinoté on the nose than the Vosne-Romanée Villages at the moment, perhaps better delineation with citrus-fresh red berry fruit mixed with orange zest wafting temptingly from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a confit-like opening, red plum and pomegranate, silky in the mouth with a succulent finish. This is a lovely wine from Cathiard.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035
(50% new oak): Good dark red with ruby tones. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, smoke, iron, earth and stony minerality. Juicy, intense purple fruit flavors show a fine-grained texture and noteworthy inner-mouth energy. Finishes with excellent length and lift but the spicy tannins come off as a bit drier than those of the Vosne villages, perhaps the result of the recent sulfur addition.
