Wine Advocate - 89-91 Points
"The 2013 Chambolle Musigny Villages has a well-defined bouquet with perfumed red plum and cranberry scents, demonstrating good fruit intensity. The palate is vibrant and lively with very good acidity and a sorbet-like freshness on the finish. There is a lot of energy waiting to burst forth here." Neal Martin
