The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras goes up a few levels in terms of mineralite over the Combottes. The aromatics soar from the glass and whisk you straight the vintage – there is astonishing tension and nervosite underpinning this Les Cras The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, intense black fruit infused with black truffle and spice, building towards a compelling peacock’s tail of a finish. This is a brilliant 2012 in the making. Christophe forgot about his single white wine until I gave him a nudge. ||Christophe Roumier was multitasking when I arrived at his domaine in Chambolle-Musigny: his mobile constantly trilling and tasting parties arriving in haphazard fashion, running here and running there. And as we know, men are not cut out for multitasking. No wonder he complained about his headache, though hopefully the aspirin, washed down with a glug of Musigny, relieved his mal de tete. But generally Christophe Roumier was in top form – just like his wines. He commenced the harvest on 22 September after the usual travails of the growing season that reduced his crops. He rued the fact that he is undergoing an expansion of his cellars, but after 2012 and a meagre 2013, has little to put in them. He suggested a comparison between 2010 and 2012, though the latter is less tannic and more “weightless” – a great word to describe many of this vintage’s wines. This year there is all but one and a half barrels of his elusive Musigny. It is an utterly transcendental wine, perhaps equal to the 2005 when I encountered that out of barrel, but if that proves just a wee bit difficult to find, then the Clos de la Bussieres is a quite brilliant Morey Saint Denis that will offer immense pleasure over the next 20 years.

Here again there is enough reduction to impede an assessment of the nose. There is good verve and detail to the softly mineral-infused flavors that exude an inner mouth perfume, all wrapped in a dusty, cool, balanced and restrained finish. This is really a lovely Chambolle. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2019+
