Chambertin is the wine of Kings. He is masculine, powerful and well built. Vigorous and firm, well structured and very dense. With great persistence in the mouth. Aromas of chocolate, licorice and red berries.
The 2018 Chambertin Grand Cru wafts from the glass with a complex bouquet of red berries, plums, rose petals and orange rind, framed by bass notes of rich, loamy soil and carnal nuances of smoked meats. Full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it’s layered and concentrated, its expansive attack segueing into a richly structured but impressively vibrant mid-palate, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This is a brilliant wine that readers should plan on forgetting for at least a decade. RP 97
