No Man Is an Island Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2014 Bourgogne, France
13% alcohol. This is made by Mischief and Mayhem and is a charity wine in collaboration with The Sourcing Table and illustrator Chris Riddell, who designed the label. It’s concentrated and well structured with lovely balance between the raspberry and cherry fruit and more savoury iron, blood and spice characters, as well as good tannins. There’s some elegance but also nice structure, and it finishes with a lovely sour cherry kick. This is really lovely: it’s a fabulous expression of both Pinot Noir and Chambolle, and could only really come from here. 94/100 (£49.50 The Sourcing Table, but you can also buy it in a 6 pack with a signed limited edition print of the label)
