Tasting Notes

The 2011 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru was raised entirely in new oak. It is aromatically not a million miles away from the Aux Combotte "11" tightly wound and a little timid on the nose at first and demands coaxing. It reluctantly reveals quite intense wet limestone scents that dominate over the red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine grip on the entry with the oak lending it a smooth veneer. Harmonious and focused, it glides to quite a sinewy finish that needs a couple of years to fully integrate the wood. Very fine. Drink 2016-2028.

Neal Martin, RobertParker.com (208), August 2013

Medium red. Musky nose shows more pepper and herbs than ripe red fruits. Surprisingly supple and easygoing on the palate, and much more pliant than it appeared to be last year from barrel. But shows very good rather than outstanding concentration and could use a bit more nuance and lift on the back. This, too, is a bit salty.
