Tasting Notes

The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru demands a little coaxing from the glass, with dark cherries, raspberry preserve and briary aromas, gradually unfurling but never fully letting go like the Chapelle-Chambertin. The palate is very well structured with a firm backbone, quite Mazoyères-like in style, the mineralité flooding out towards the second half that displays an insistent grip and impressive length. Excellent.

Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2019

A glorious bouquet of cherries, raspberries, vine smoke, licorice and loamy soil introduces the 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, a full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping wine that's deep, succulent and satiny textured, concluding with a long and lip-smacking finish. This is a Charmes that amply merits its name this year, and as I observed when tasting it from barrel, it will offer a wide drinking window.

William Kelley, RobertParker.com, January 2020

A fresh, pure and relatively high-toned nose of elegant red currant, soft spice, rose petal and an agreeably subtle hint of wood. The sense of refinement continues onto the equally pure and well-detailed medium weight flavors that possess a caressing mouthfeel, all wrapped in a solidly complex and persistent finish that is firm but not so much so that this could not be approached young.
