Reduction. The supple, round and strikingly refined, indeed even silky flavors possess focused power and punch while offering outstanding length on the dusty, palate coating and mildly austere finale. This is an exercise in harmony and refinement.
(25% _vendange entier; from Mazoyères-Chambertin): Slightly reduced aromas of crushed strawberry, iron and chocolate are lifted by a note of rose petal. Wonderfully silky and rich but with plenty of energy to its sappy flavors of dark cherry, mint and flowers. Spreads out to saturate the entire palate on the back end, finishing with atypical finesse and refined tannins for Mazoyères.(ST)
The 2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a refined bouquet with ample dark cherry, black plum and hints of violet coming through with time, though I found myself preferring more the delineation on the Gevrey Aux Combottes. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet tannin; conservative in some ways with sharp acidity and rigid tannin. Perhaps it needs more complexity and tension to develop on the finish by the time of bottling to rank with the best Charmes-Chambertin.
