Fashioned from a parcel located in the heart of its grand cru (mostly from 25-year old vines though Raphet asserts that 'there are still some very old ones'), the 2003 Charmes-Chambertin Cuvee Unique explodes with red fruit aromas. Sappy, bursting with red cherries, this is a sensual wine made for hedonists. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and concentrated, it has serious depth of fruit, loads of smile-inducing spices and an exceptionally long, supple finish filled with superbly ripened tannin. Drink it over the next 11-14 years (incidentally, I served the 1996 at this year’s International Pinot Noir Celebration’s salmon bake in Oregon and it was terrific, wowing all who drank it.) (PR)
Bright, saturated ruby-red. Knockout nose melds black raspberry, rose petal, mocha, underbrush and truffle. Then surprisingly closed, even taut, in the mouth, with densely packed flavors of blueberry, black cherry, game and mocha. There's a deep sweetness to this shapely wine that augurs well for development in bottle. Tannins are quite fine. (ST)
