(90% vendange entier; 60% new oak): Deep, bright red. Pure but subdued aromas of plum, redcurrant, meat, soil and minerals. Delivers an extraordinary combination of silkiness and precision, with the utterly seamless flavors delivering terrific sappy mineral grip. This wonderfully spherical Chambertin is balanced from day one but has the acid cut and tannic spine for a long and spectacular evolution in bottle.
