Scores and tasting notes


Tasted blind, the 2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru displays a very attractive and expressive bouquet of red berries, cherries, rich loamy soil, peony and raw cocoa, subtly framed by some cedary, recently used oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and juicy, with a supple attack, an open-knit palate but a disappointingly firm, compact—even somewhat drying—finish. While in February this performed quite modestly given its pedigree and appellation, my score when tasting blind was a few points lower.
