One of the highlights in this vertical, the 1991 Chambertin is simply stratospheric. Dense and powerful, with a huge center of fruit and exceptional balance, the 1991 is wonderfully complete from start to finish. The flavors are shrouded in darkness, and yet there is more than enough aromatic lift, sweetness and freshness to balance its more sepia-toned leanings. This is another wine with a good 20 years of profound drinking ahead of it. (AG)
The 1991 Chambertin is almost black. After Comte de Vogue's Musigny-Vieilles Vignes, it is the darkest-colored grand cru red burgundy of the vintage. It displays a lead pencil, Mouton-like element in the bouquet, gobs of rich, sweet, black-raspberry fruit, plenty of smoky, toasty new oak, and remarkable concentration and length. A quintessential Chambertin, it makes a mockery of all the watery, vapid wines priced at over $100 a bottle that emerge from this grand cru vineyard. Super-rich, yet young and unevolved, this is a Chambertin to drink from the turn of the century through the first two decades of the next millennium. (RP)
