The 2010 Charmes-Chambertin boasts gorgeous inner perfume and mid-palate generosity. It is an especially round, seductive wine for the year. There is no shortage of personality and character. The Charmes fleshes out considerably in the glass, showing off its serious weight. All this needs is time to fully come together, but it is impressive, even today. Lignier’s Charmes is made from a parcel in Mazoyeres. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. (AG)
The Lignier Charmes-Chambertin in 2010 is also exceptional, but it is one of the most closed wines in the cellar at the present time and will need a good dozen years of bottle age to start to really come into its own. The deep, pure and superb nose offers up scents of cassis, dark berries, espresso, black minerality, grilled meat, fresh herbs and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a rock solid core of fruit, fine-grained tannins, tangy acids and excellent length and grip on the youthful and fairly primary finish. I may be underrating this a touch, but today it looks to be in the same league as the beautiful Combottes, rather than a step up in quality. (Drink between 2022-2075)
