BurghoundReduction flattens the nose and once again renders it impossible to assess. The natural elegance and class of Les Cras is immediately evident in the mouth as the textured, intense and sleekly powerful flavors simply ooze minerality that continues onto the beautifully long, balanced and refreshing finale. This strikingly pretty effort is firm but a bit less austere than it typically is at this stage and should amply repay 10 to 12 years of cellaring. 91-93
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chambolle-Musigny les Cras has a very reticent, broody bouquet that does not want to come out to play. The palate is vibrant and focused with wonderful chalky tannins, citric acidity and a long, lightly spiced finish that fans out with vim and vigor. This should be very satisfying once in bottle, although I wager that it will deserve more cellaring than Roumier's other 2013s.
