A wonderfully expressive and layered nose is more complex if not quite as elegant though here too there are soft floral nuances to the red cherry, pomegranate, plum and earth scents. There is a similar sense of refinement to the slightly larger-scaled flavors that are shaped by remarkably fine-grained tannins on the precise, saline and lingering finale. This is a Charmes of finesse that embodies what I like to call power without weight. In a word, lovely.
Good dark red with ruby tones. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry and crushed rock. Plush, sweet and deep, with a rich, sappy raspberry flavor enlivened by calcaire energy. Finishes very long, with a complicating notes of peppery lift. This needs time in the cellar.
The 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin is one of the darker, spicier Grand Crus in the lineup. Here it is the wine's depth and mid-palate intensity that stand out most, especially in a year in which the wines are generally brighter in style. The powerful, explosive finish holds plenty of allure, though, especially for those with the patience to cellar the 2013 until at least age ten or so.
