Tasting Notes

(from a rocky site in the upper part of Charmes, close to Rousseau's Chambertin, according to Perrot-Minot, but harvested near the beginning as this fruit passes into surmaturité quickly): Brilliant dark Pinot red. Wonderfully subtle, high-pitched scents of raspberry, rose petal and stony minerality. Sharply delineated but not yet showy in the middle palate, with its pungent red fruit and floral flavors currently overshadowed by mineral salts. Youthfully tight in spite of its delicacy and finesse, this classic "true" Charmes will need considerable patience. The substantial dusty tannins show no rough edges.

Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, January 2017

The 2015 Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a complex nose that demanded more coaxing from the glass compared to the domaine's other 2015s. It almost reluctantly unfolds (unusual for this grand cru) with scents of crushed rose petals, oyster shell, dark cherry and a hint of bergamot. The definition is very fine, but you can tell that it will remain closed for a period after bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a structured and more masculine Charmes-Chambertin than I expected, yet with ample depth and tight grip on the finish. I would have just preferred more persistence in the mouth, but that may develop with bottle age. One to watch...

**Note: from a 1.5 ha parcel situated directly across from Domaine Rousseau's parcel of Chambertin**
Here there is no reduction as the admirably pure, elegant and spice-suffused nose offers up a beautiful array of various red berries along with hints of earth and violets. There is a highly seductive texture to the dense, mouth coating and extract-rich flavors that deliver excellent length on the mildly austere and tension-filled finale.
