(Taupenot made just over a barrel of wine from 0.5 hectare, which equates to about five hectoliters per hectare): Dark red with ruby highlights. The high-pitched nose communicates a tight kernel of black cherry stomp, spices and stony minerality accented by licorice and black pepper. Densely packed and distinctly powerful but neither unwieldy nor hot; really saturates the palate with medicinal black cherry and licorice. Finishes with broad, serious, fine-grained tannins and noteworthy verve. This very dark, tactile Combe d’Orveau is hard to scrape off your palate. 90-93 points. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Combe d’Orveau was reduced from eight or nine barrels to just a couple this year due to frost. The bouquet tends toward black rather than red fruit, touches of orange blossom developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite linear and strict with a grainy textured, even tobacco-tinged finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. Though I have a preference for last year’s 2015, this is still a decent wine in a difficult, traumatic vintage. 89-91 points. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
