2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
Thsi is very Charmes in style, focussed, almost gentle in character. Plenty of fruit concentration but subtle and controlled. Very much deep red fruits rather than black ones. Stylish
`The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has quite a candied bouquet with vivacious red fruit laced with orange blossom and a touch of Earl Grey tea. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, juicier than the Corton Rognet but maybe without the same degree of precision on the finish. This is a gutsy, generous Charmes-Chambertin that should age well over the next 10 to 12 years, though in this vintage it is the Mazoyères that has the upper hand.` 91-93 points, Neal Martin, the Wine Advocate.
