By arse this is lovely Chambolle

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Cras 1995, Domaine G. Roumier

Ah what a charming nose. Ripe cherries and strawberries with complex mineral aromas. This is a real lovely, very refined and pure, but bursting with titillating pleasure. The palate sings a wonderful song of softness and life. It is incredibly silky and smooth, but is kept racy thanks to some good acidity. The fruit is utterly delicious. I knew Christophe Roumier’s 95s were good but this takes the grape in terms of how much I love it. Don’t get me wrong this is a freaking triple-A charm-tastic ball of love to drink now but I wonder if it might be even nicer in two-three years.
