The 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru la Combe d'Orveau has dark fruit, blackberry and black plum, with a touch of sous-bois on the broody nose that demands some encouragement from the glass. It has an effervescent entry with a surfeit of energy. There is still a veneer of toasty new oak to be subsumed here, but there is sufficient fruit to do just that. There is a hint of black pepper towards the finish that is conservative but nicely defined.
