Here is a 2005 Chambertin that rivals the rose petals of Clos de Beze, along with licorice, a ripeness of red fruit, a suggestion of peach jam, and a pungency of cinnamon that turns tactile on the palate. A chocolate richness and liqueur-like fruit intensity in the mouth never lose sight of the rose petals, nor cover up the chalk, wet stone and roasted meat that underlie a sumptuous, sultry finish. 'Round,' 'rich' and 'resonant' gain new meaning with this stunningly opulent Pinot. (DS)
Deep red-ruby; less saturated than the last few samples. Reduced, vinous nose hints at pungent wild red fruits, minerals, smoked meat and tobacco. Silky and fine-grained; boasts a spherical shape that few wines of this vintage-or any other-can match. This has a wonderfully suave palate feel and coats every square millimeter of the palate. The texture of liquid silk carries through on the extremely long, layered finish. (ST)
Strong reduction characterizes this raw and almost unbelievably primary nose that leads to big, rich, and opulent flavors that possess a forceful, detailed and quite minerally finish that is serious, brooding and strikingly long. This is texturally and stylistically different than virtually all the other wines though there may be convergence once it develops further in barrel though for now, it's a wine apart.
