Charmes Chambertin VV, Domaine Bachelet 2006

Tasting Notes

Fine pure colour, younger than the 2007. The usual generous burst of deep red fruit, middleweight in 2006, good acidity, some structure. There is maybe a hint of slightly torrefied wood, though otherwise this displays one of the best noses of the tasting. Beautifully plump fruit on the palate.

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, November 2013

Despite being harvested first, this is clearly the ripest wine in the range where the wonderfully dense fruit is highlighted by a background touch of wood that continues onto the refined, pure and concentrated flavors that are supported by dense but fine tannins and flat out terrific length. This is a lovely wine in every respect and while not exactly understated, everything does seem to be in perfect proportion.
