The 2015 Le Chiuse Brunello is layered with black cherry, leather, sage, and forest floor. The palate is full-bodied and fruit-forward, with fresh fig, tomato leaf, warming amaro spice, and dark-mineral earth. Its structure is generous with ripe tannin and fresh acidity and does not feel weighed down by the warmth of the vintage. Another incredible, classic, and savory wine from the Le Chiuse estate worthy of enjoyment over many years.
Aromas of woodland berry, new leather, blue flower and a baby powder shape the enticing nose on this fragrant red. Juicy and bright, the polished, delicious palate doles out crushed raspberry, cherry compote and baking spice alongside taut, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced while a licorice note graces the finish. (KO)
Wonderful aromas of blueberries, lavender, violet and sandalwood. Full-bodied, extremely balanced and refined with beautifully polished tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows tension and focus. Complexity, too. Lovely length to this.
The Le Chuise 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a slightly shy and timid bouquet. My feeling is that this reticent quality will serve the wine very well as it continues the course of its aging. The bouquet shows mild fruit with some potting soil, leather, tar and licorice. This Brunello from Le Chiuse is definitely characterized by a savory side as well with a pretty point of saltiness that you don't commonly find in its peers. This is a true beauty—the wine is elegant, shiny and glossy from the inside out. Fruit comes from an eight-hectare parcel with vines that are 26 years old. (ML)
Deep red. Initially closed nose opens slowly to showcase damp earth, black cherry, flint, sweet spices and camphor. Enters juicy and vibrant, with flavors of dark plum and cherry with a steely and floral overlay, then turns more austere and elegant with a persistent red and blue fruit set of flavors. Finishes long and balsamic. Really pure and intense but lively, this outstanding wine really speaks of the style of Le Chiuse, always on the refined side. Should also prove very age-worthy. (ID)
A beam of black cherry and black currant fruit is at the heart of this red. Supple and balanced, this stays long and complex on the finish, as earth, iron and sanguine notes emerge. A dense swath of tannins lines the finish. (BS)
Le Chiuse's 6ha of Brunello vineyards are in the north of Montalcino at 300 metres. Co-owner and agronomist Nicolò Magnelli explains that the area typically gives fresher, more elegantly styled wines. Above all, he credits the soil - predominantly calcareous clay with lots of fossils - for their complex, mineral-driven wine. The 2015 is subtle in its many charms. Herbs, moist earth, tobacco and tea waft discreetly from the glass. The texture is fluid with smooth but ample tannins. This is replete with red summer berries without being heavy, elegant yet offering plenty of hedonistic pleasure. Well-measured proportions here. (MM)
Tasted blind. Lustrous ruby. Cherry fruit of great depth. Concentrated but contained. Not a huge amount of acidity and with a generous fruit finish, but still in an embryonic state. You just sense there is much more to come. 17+/20 points (WS)
