Once again an intensely floral nose is quite cool and restrained with a soft green tea character to the earthy and spicy red currant scents. This is a big 2013 with its broad-shouldered flavors that brim with both dry extract and plenty of minerality as I really like the sense of energy on the explosively long, muscular and powerful finish that is also quite youthfully austere. This stunner of a Chambertin is going to need plenty of time in a cool cellar.
(50% vendange entier): Bright medium red. Very complex, subtle aromas of raspberry, flowers, licorice, minerals and menthol opened nicely with air. Boasts terrific inner-mouth menthol-and-spice tension, with its juicy dark berry fruit still wound up but already showing a captivating restrained sweetness. Finishes with terrific saline grip and length, the suave tannins perfectly buffered by fruits and minerals. Delivers the energy of the vintage in spades without being particularly austere.(ST)
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Chambertin Grand Cru has a gorgeous bouquet that is beautifully defined, succinct use of new oak and wonderful mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, quite high acidity and a bit tarty in character. Precise, very tensile with a stony, slightly austere finish that just fades when you expect/wish for a crescendo or peacock's tail. Hopefully this is just a restless phase for this Grand Cru. Tasted September 2016.(NM)
