Reviews and Ratings

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

Alex: Opens up with a feral, animal fur and savory spice character that is quite lean on the palate for a Chambertin, but still expansive, fluid and flavorful. It finished with a strong acidic zip. Given a hour or so of air (no decant) though it blooms into a soaring aroma that translates from being animal, spicy and masculine to beguilingly pretty, full of fresh lilac and purple iris flowers tossed in white pepper and clove spice, accenting the sweetest raspberry fruit. The nose shifts ever so casually throughout the 4 hours spent with it...and the palate had fleshed out marvellously. The grace gained on the palate was exemplary, and it held it's strength into the next day. What separates this from the rest in this leaner year is the uncanny balance and regal flow the palate had, supplying an endless stream of mineral laced, complex flavor yet never feeling the least bit heavy. While I believe this will continue to age for another 10 years or so, it's quite ready now if you give it 2 hours to breathe. I don't recommend decanting. 96 pts
