Faiveley Chambolle-Musigny "Les Charmes" 1er cru 2011

I went to the new location of The Wine Emporium in Brisbane, now situated at the Gasworks complex in Newstead. A slightly smaller floorspace, but still stocked with some tempting wines. This wine was recommended to me, and being cautious about the ’11s, I only bought one. A great nose: minerals and smoke and stalk, but not in a bad way at all. That said, swirling the wine in the glass, it is on the edge, and it made me think it could go either way. Delicate palate, following the nose, sour cherries and dry stalks. Moving to something sweeter with time, and then seemed a bit woody; enimgatic. Nothing stalky or green thank goodness. Very nice. 89 points. Drink 2014-2017
