A discreet application of wood frames the even more complex nose of high-toned, cool and airy aromas of red and dark cherry, forest floor, rose petal and spice elements. The sleek, intense and once again highly sophisticated middle weight plus flavors brim with both minerality and dry extract that buffers the even firmer tannic spine shaping the hugely long and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is relatively succulent for a young Latricières but I suspect that the present inviting mouthfeel will be replaced in short order by something firmer and more austere. In short, this is stunningly good but it is not likely to make for especially inviting early drinking. 2035+
Latricières-Chambertin is the cooler climat than Chapelle, and for that reason, it always excels in ripe, warm vintages such as 2015. This is more reserved than the flamboyant Chapelle, but every bit as stunning, as it soars from the glass in a mix of black cherries, cassis, bitter chocolate, grilled pigeon, a great base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a bit of nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and properly reserved in personality, with a rock solid core of black fruit, great soil signature, fine-grained, ripe tannins and a very long, very pure and chewy finish. Another magical wine. 2030-2100.
The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru cannot quite match its "sister", the Chapelle-Chambertin, in terms of precision and energy on the nose, here more conservative as you would expect—more correct and well behaved with its blackberry and raspberry leaf aromas, though there is still fine mineralité. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, notes of cold stone, hints of dried blood tincturing the black fruit with that energy filtering through on the finish. This is composed and utterly charming.(NM)
Good medium red. Subtle, deeply pitched nose combines dark berries, violet and a sexy, slightly wild smoky quality. Wonderfully rich and suave in the style of the vintage's best examples, but with surprising energy to frame the flavors of purple fruits, violet, earth and game. I love this wine's combination of sucrosité and whole-cluster (40%) pungency. The slowly-rising finish saturates the palate with fine-grained tannins and subtle, building minerality. (ST)
