This offers up notes of red cherry, raspberry, liquorice and mint, with a concentrated, full-bodied, impressively complete and multidimensional palate framed by fine, chalky tannins. The low yields of the vintage in Chambolle are reflected by unusual concentration and depth. Drinking window 2020 - 2035. (WK)
Despite the very short crop in this village in 2016, the Drouhins’ example of Chambolle AC has retained plenty of charm and is not overtly structured, as can be the case with some examples. The bouquet is pure and refined, offering up scents of red and black cherries, woodsmoke, mustard seed, coffee, a touch of pigeon and a lovely base of chalky soil tones. On the palate the wine is pure, full and nicely energetic, with a very good core, moderate tannins and lovely length and grip on the well balanced finish. Good juice. (Drink between 2021-2050)
(25% vendange entier; includes estate fruit as well as purchased grapes from vines worked by Drouhin): Medium red. Slightly medicinal aromas of black cherry, menthol and mint. Juicy, firmly built and energetic, in a distinctly dry style. A bit tannic and reticent for young village wine but finishes with good length. I suspect that this wine could be carafed and then serve chilled for its youthful fruit, but I'd rather wait a couple years. (ST)
