The 2005 Chambolle Les Fremieres exhibits a unique aroma of sweet pea, thyme, mocha-coffee, black currant, and smoked meat. Rich and creamy in the mouth, it nevertheless registers a brightness of fruit and invigorating cast as it spreads its charm to all corners of the palate. Porcine, smoky meatiness is never far from the surface, though, nor is a wet stone, chalky mineral cast that segues into the wine’s fine underlying tannins. A finish of sweet black currant fruit accompanied by bitter-sweet herbal notes offers exemplary transparency to floral nuances and underlying minerals. As with the Genaivrieres, there is plenty of delicious mystery here over which to scratch one’s head. Importer: Martine’s Wines. Novato, CA; tel. (415) 883-0400
