Tasting Notes

Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru was showing some quality new oak on the nose that still needs to be subsumed. It is tightly coiled but it just needs time because there is freshness, definition and beguiling complexity locked in here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well judged acidity and clever use of new oak lending body without compromising terroir expression. The finish feels focused and satisfying and the texture leaves you totally seduced. Class, class, class. Tasted September 2016.

The 2013 Ruchottes Chambertin Grand Cru, which is aged in 70-75% new oak, has a very precise bouquet with pastille-like poise and freshness: wild strawberry and dark cherries, a touch of violet petal in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a succulent entry, nicely judged acidity, becoming denser toward the finish with a gentle but insistent grip. There is a spicy note on the tip of the tongue that lingers long afterwards. This is a very fine follow-up to the stupendous 2012 Ruchottes.
