"The 2016 Chapelle-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru, which lost half its production due to frost, has quite an intense bouquet with slightly darker fruit than Perrot-Minot's Charmes-Chambertin: raspberry mingling with blackcurrant and blueberry. With aeration in the glass, it becomes quite floral and offers attractive wilted violet petal scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. I love the balance and poise of this Chapelle-Chambertin, nothing too extroverted or showy, just all about the tension and the mineralité that comes through on the finish."

"Here too the restrained but exceptionally pretty nose is cool, pure and airy with its array of red and dark currant, earth, spice and lovely floral nuances. The middle weight and caressing flavors possess a notably finer mouthfeel that is at once firm but elegant thanks once again to the relatively fine grain of the supporting tannins shaping the markedly firm and youthfully austere finish. This is very clearly built-to-age yet I suspect that it will unwind sufficiently quickly to be approachable after 5-ish years or so of cellaring." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 69

"Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Very rich, deep aromas of small wild dark fruits, tobacco and earth lifted by floral and spicy high notes. Plush, seamless, silky wine offering captivating sweetness and impressive volume without any heaviness. In fact, the dark fruit and savory soil flavors convey a remarkable lightness. The palate-staining, spicy finish leaves the taste buds vibrating." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
