The 2007 Chapelle was also showing beautifully, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of sappy black cherries, blood orange, bitter chocolate, game, herb tones, a touch of tobacco, lovely soil tones and new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and quite elegant on the attack, with fine mid-palate depth, ripe tannins and excellent length and grip on the complex and beautifully poised finish. A very classy Chapelle. (Drink between 2014-2040)
Good medium red. Expressive, high-toned aromas of raspberry, cherry, licorice, minerals and black tea. Dense, sweet and very concentrated, with a small-berry intensity to the blueberry and spice flavors. Finishes long and sweet, with a broad dusting of tannins, a note of licorice and excellent grip. And yet I thought the Bonnes-Mares showed a bit more energy.
This too sports a distinctly wild berry infused nose with ample earth, underbrush and a hint of animale that can also be found on the fresh, concentrated, full and generous flavors that possess obvious minerality on the seductive yet quite serious finish brimming with dry extract that renders the otherwise firm tannic spine almost invisible. The old vine sap is quite evident and while this is almost seductive at such an early stage, I suspect that things will tighten up considerably in time.
Resinous notes practically pitch-like scent the Jadot 2007 Chapelle-Chambertin, along with plum, cherry, and their distilled counterparts. The pungency foreshadowed in the nose is met by an almost confectionary sense of sweet fruit on the palate as well as complimentary hints of peat, licorice, ginger and black pepper. This offers greater complexity and a larger reservoir of juicy primary fruit than its Charmes or Latricieres counterparts, and the grip of the latter but with far more refined yet ample tannins. I would expect to derive a good decade of pleasure and fascination over the next 6-8 years. The bevy of strong performances from this site in 2007 (consult the many instances on which I have reported) signals I suspect its being under-estimated as a cru. (DS)
An elegantly made wine, this feels complete while also seeming completely wrapped in new oak. A scent of black walnuts and chocolate, the suppleness of the texture, the clean moderation of intensity, all focus on the contribution of the oak. Underneath, there's a ripe cherry and strawberry fruit character layered over earthiness, more than substantial enough to consume the oak over the next ten years.
This broad red is laced with cherry, strawberry and vegetal aromas and flavors, yet it's also very firm, linear and crisp. There's detail and elegance, but will require some time to integrate more fully. Best from 2014 through 2028.
