(from a .90 ha parcel; (noted as 'En Zéro' to indicate that no sulfur was used). A wonderfully spicy, elegant and fresh nose blends notes of red and dark cherry with those of cassis, plum, violet and discreet earth nuances. The intense and tautly muscular middle weight plus flavors are even more refined if perhaps not quite as mineral-driven while delivering superb length on the balanced but markedly austere finish where a touch of cherry pit emerges. This terrific effort is very clearly built-to-age and I wouldn’t dream of touching a bottle for at least 10 years and it should easily reward 20. 2032+
Super-ripe and brooding nose showing black fruits. There is power and tension here. Very ripe attack, balanced and given precision by the exuberant acidity. Spicy, perky, and very long.Drinking Window 2020 - 2035.(SB)
The 2015 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru has the most composed bouquet of Laurent Ponsot's grand crus from the Gevrey appéllation, with seductive scents of black cherry, wild strawberry and crushed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and crisp acidity, pretty dark cherries and blueberry here with a slither of Seville orange marmalade on the finish. It is a satisfactory Griotte Chambertin, although I would like to see more depth, more energy conveyed towards the finish.
