Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Feusselottes" 2011, Méo-Camuzet

My friends and I are a fussy lot when it comes to Chambolles, but we are nevertheless happy to try wines like this "Feusselottes" from the Domaine Méo-Camuzet tasted at the annual Justerini & Brooks Burgundy tasting. This Chambolle 1er Cru offers strawberries, rhubarb and blood orange but seems a little bit flat in terms of aromatic profile. Very fresh, zingy, high toned, the acidity is a tad too high. Dare I say it but the Fixin 1er Cru is at this stage a better balanced and more complete wine... and costs one-third the amount of the Chambolle. The wine will evolve but of course it can not become more ripe. Scores 18-21/30 for a Chambolle premier cru.
