Grapelive Wine of the Week
By Kerry Winslow
2007 Michel Gros Chambolle-Musigny Red Burgundy.
This is Chambolle at its charming best with lovely perfume and elegant lively fruit, not a blockbuster or a long term keeper, but a wonderful ready to drink Burgundy. Michel Gros has really come of age with his current line up and the quality of the 2007 is easy to spot, especially in this textured Chambolle-Musigny. The nose lights up your face with fresh roses and violets, and the palate is like watching a Ballerina in top form with cherry, plum and currant fruits plus a lush silky feel. This is a seductive red Burgundy to enjoy now and for the next 3 years, highly recommended.
