Charmes Chambertin, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2018
From one third of a hectare in Les Mazoyères, planted in 1968 by Thomas Collardot’s grandfather. Glowing purple. The nose is majestic but not over the top. Lovely perfumed ripe raspberry. Gorgeous flowing fruit across the palate, fine balance at the back. But NB 15% alcohol, which the wine seems to be able to carry.
|Score: 94/97||Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, January 2020|
The 2018 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru was showing a touch of reduction on the nose, but underneath are fine blackberry and raspberry aromas and touches of potpourri and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained, supple tannins, superb acidity and a harmonious, silky finish. Excellent.
