Chapelle Chambertin, Cecile Tremblay 2019

Tasting Notes

Is the 2019 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru the finest wine that Cécile Tremblay has produced to date? I thought so when I tasted it in barrel, and that impression has only been confirmed on the two occasions I have tasted it from bottle. Offering up a deep bouquet of raspberries and cherries mingled with exotic spices, rose petals, raw cocoa and a beautifully integrated framing of new oak, it's full-bodied, seamless and complete, with all the depth and power of a vintage such as 2015, combined with the suave elegance and charm of a more giving vintage such as 2017. Perfumed and expansive, this impeccably balanced red Burgundy is one of the wines of the vintage and worth every and any effort to taste!
