The new vintage from a 
high-quality producer in 
Chambolle-Musigny

By now I assume many of you will have had the opportunity to taste the wines of Roblot-Marchand shipped earlier this year. They are high quality Burgundies from serious vineyards and are very well priced in today's strong Burgundy market.

A week or so back we received details of our 2016 allocation from Domaine Roblot-Marchand.
 
You have probably read that the 2016 vintage was severely hit by frost. During my visit to Burgundy last month it was very apparent what affect that had on production. Cellar after cellar looked almost empty with quantities often less than 30% of usual. In fact in some cases the frost completely decimated the vineyard so there was zero production.
 
Roblot Bourgogne label Chambolle-Musigny was badly hit so it was with great pleasure that I read that my 2016 allocation from Roblot-Marchand was quite reasonable. The Premier Crus from Chambolle-Musigny are quite limited and I only have 25 cases of their lovely Bourgogne (from Chambolle-Musigny fruit). Chambolle-Musigny Pas de Chat was not produced at all. Other wines are ok including the Vosne-Romanee 1er cru Les Rouges du Dessus. This year I have a few cases of Echezeaux Grand Cru which is available to everyone with some conditions (see below).

Roblot-marchand Fuees label I did visit the domaine in October but the timing was not great. There was much activity in the winery with the 2017's and most of the 2016's had just been racked. There was not a lot available for tasting and I was offered just four 2016 cuvees. The Chambolle-Musigny Villages was aromatic and lively - very classic Chambolle. The Vosne-Romanee Villages was perfumed and spicy. Not particularly dark but very attractive. Roblot-Marchand Vosne Rouges NV label Gevrey-Chambertin La Croix des Champs was a lot deeper with serious intensity. An excellent Gevrey. Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Rouges du Dessus was the top wine. More weight and spice, darker with more character. A must for the cellar.

We have 11 wines available 2016. We are too early for reviews but I suggest you read the vintage report from winehog.org at right. His impressions are very similar to mine. It is going to be lovely vintage for Burgundy connoisseurs.

Roblot-Marchand Echezeaux NV label IMPORTANT! Echezeaux 2016. We don't have much of this so it is only available based on your purchases of Premier Cru wines. For every 8 bottles of Premier Cru (mix and match as you please) purchased you may buy 1 bottle of Echezeaux. Limit 3 per person.
If you love Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanee this is a domaine not to be missed. The wines are great value for money.
