This is more restrained still though aggressive swirling eventually coaxes the gorgeously broad-ranging and pure nose to reveal a more floral and spicier mélange of red and dark currant, plum, tea, and soft earth scents. The equally pure, naturally sweet, precise and beautifully detailed medium-bodied flavors possess slightly better depth and even a bit more persistence. In short, this is gorgeous and very Chapelle.
The 2017 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru is much more reserved on the nose compared to the Charmes-Chambertin, the fruit a little darker. There is something of a crushed-pebble, almost beach-like scent, a distant tang of cockle sheds that surfaces with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and a little more depth and grip than the Charmes-Chambertin, even if it does not quite display the same sensuality and flesh on the finish. Good potential. (NM)
