Bright, deep red. Dark cherry, dried rose, licorice and a nutty nuance on the nose. Lush, sappy and dense, with compelling flavors of redcurrant, cherry and minerals. This has a liqueur-like quality without losing its sappy freshness or energy. Wonderfully light on its feet. The very long finish features a whiplash of flavor and lovely lingering perfume. I seriously underrated this beauty from barrel a year ago. (ST)
An outstanding wine. A pronounced raspberry, damp earthy nose that is quite brusque and masculine. Is that a touch of toffee there after a time in the glass? The palate has superb weight, very good concentration with a supple mouthfeel. Black cherries, redcurrants and raspberry. Very persistent on the finish. Chapelle is usually a little lighter of the Chambertin Grand Crus: but this is excellent. (NM)
This beauty has turned into a really lovely wine, and particularly so in the context of the vintage as the lightly menthol-inflected nose is entirely free of the 'green meanies' and doesn't even display a trace of herbal tea (which is rare). There is good punch and detail to the delicious medium weight flavors that deliver fine if not truly sensational length on the moderately complex finale where a very subtle hint of acid tang arrives. If there is a fly in the ointment at present, it's that this isn't super complex but I very much like the delivery and this is a clear success in what was a tough vintage. For my taste this is drinking perfectly well now though it could easily be held for a few more years first.
More rustic in style, with coarse tannins asserting themselves over cherry, menthol and earth notes. Yet not overly dry on the finish, suggesting that this just needs time to integrate. Best from 2009 through 2016. (BS)
