Very old vines from early 1920s, which were planted at very high density (more than 11,000 vines per hectare). It has a very impressive sense of completeness and a regal air. Loaded with red cherries, orange zest and fresh sappy aromas. It delivers velvety, fine tannins in a seamless mode. Very impressive from start to finish. Already drinking well. This has a good twenty-year window ahead.
Moderately saturated medium red. Exhilarating pungent perfume of raspberry, cranberry, rose petal and crushed stone. Wonderfully juicy and intense, but with an impression of penetrating energy giving the middle palate a magically weightless quality. With its inner-mouth rose petal perfume and captivating balance of sweet and savory red fruit and spice elements, this is totally different in style from the darker, more reserved Mazis. For all its precision and saline energy, this beauty has a texture like liquid silk. These 90-year-old vines on rich soil still produce 30 hectoliters per hectare, according to Barnier. Finishes with noble tannins and outstanding spicy, floral lift, staining the palate and lingering without losing its breadth. This fruit was picked on September 9. (ST)
Produced from vines owned by Louis Jadot, this wine, like all the grand crus in Gevry-Chambertin comes from a vineyard halfway up the slope behind the village. It has the proper structure, but such is the richness of this vintage, the fruit is already sumptuous, full of ripe cherry and berry flavors. At the same time, it is elegant and with such as stylish, smart aftertaste. Drink from 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
This too displays noticeable wood influence though here it’s more in the form of menthol than toast though it’s not so much as to materially impede the appreciation of the red cherry and overtly floral-scented nose where ample hints of the sauvage and warm earth eventually appear. There is remarkably good concentration as the old vine sap is immediately evident whilst coating the palate and pushing the even firmer tannic spine to the background on the powerful and intensely mineral-driven finale. Despite the impressive size, weight and power this is actually more refined than usual but even so, it’s going to require a very long snooze in an appropriately cool cellar. In sum, this is seriously good Chapelle.
The 2015 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has an open red cherry, crushed strawberry and sea spray-scented bouquet that perhaps does not quite have the complexity, nor the intrigue of the Mazis-Chambertin at this stage. The palate is refined with grippy tannin and a commendable sense of energy and tension. The salinity comes through on the finish and lends this grand cru fine sappiness, urging you back for another sip. (NM)
This is still tightly wound and marked by assertive tannins. Shows a leafy, vegetal side, complemented by a core of cherry, raspberry and sweet spice notes. Dense and muscular, with licorice and tobacco details on the finish. (BS)
