Tasting Notes

The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a voluptuous and sensual bouquet, perhaps the most instantly attractive of the quintet of Jadot's grand cru Gevreys that I tasted. There are waves of crushed strawberries, black cherries, blueberry and violet aromas all neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy black cherry and boysenberry fruit laced with bay leaf and black tea, becoming more structured and Mazoyères-like on the finish (although it is proper "Charmes!"). Drink Date 2021 - 2045

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (234), December 2017

Bright full red. The nose offers reticent, rather cool aromas of dark cherry and herbs but lacks the floral lift of most of Jadot's Gevrey premier crus. Very ripe, creamy and concentrated but can't match the Clos Saint-Jacques for definition or inner-mouth tension. A substantial 2016 but I don't find grand cru class or distinction here. Finishes with serious tannins that will require patience.
