Charmes Chambertin (0.75 L)
This is the first wine to display any appreciable amount of wood and in this case it’s generous to the point that there are menthol nuances on the otherwise layered nose that is very Gevrey in character with plenty of game, forest floor and earth scents. The rich, round and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors possess fine depth and length if not the sheer potential of the best here. Still, this is really quite good and should make for a lovely wine with 10 plus years of age on it.
