Beautifully aromatic. Pure, fresh, and bright cherry, plum, and red berry fruit aromas with a hint of herb and spice. On the palate, the flavors mirror the aromas, with vibrant cherry fruit and silky tannins. It is a very supple wine with a lot of finesse and elegance.
Elegant and dense, with cherry, iron, stone and spice flavors fused to firm, dusty tannins. The fruit is locked up tight, revealing potential on the long, fruit- and spice-filled aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2042.
The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a sultry, earthy bouquet with touches of oyster shell coming through with aeration. It never quite kicks into fifth gear though. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit laced with orange rind and brown spices. It gains more complexity and nuance towards the finish with an attractive saline aftertaste. Not the most memorable Charmes-Chambertin that I have encountered, but there is no denying that it is very well crafted.
The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is another of the more youthfully expressive wines in the range, offering up aromas of ripe cherries, red plums, woodsmoke, dark chocolate and sweet forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and expressive, with fine tannins, tangy acids and a charming core of fruit.
This is the first wine to display any appreciable level of reduction and in this case it's enough to dominate the underlying fruit. Otherwise there is good detail and excellent punch to the beguilingly delicious, intense and focused medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the mildly austere, beautifully complex and solidly persistent finish. I like the potential of this balanced effort that should amply repay extended cellaring if desired.
