Charmes Chambertin, Vincent Girardin 2005
In contrast to several of the prior wines, there was no reduction here but the nose was decidedly backward, tight and almost closed, revealing only grudging notes of earth and iron-infused red berry fruit that complements well the rich, full, sweet and generous flavors that are delicious, complex and concentrated. This won’t win any award for elegance but there is plenty of character and punch.

Bright medium ruby. Cool, reserved aromas of red cherry, flowers, brown spices and minerals; this is rather Chambertin-like. Dense, suave and deep, with ripe acids and enticing floral character. But this still needs more elevage and definition. Finishes quite broad, with a fine dusting of tannins and noteworthy aromatic persistence. Very promising wine, best today on the nose and aftertaste.

An absolutely lovely expression of top class Pinot on the nose. Classic and pure. On the palate there is rich red fruit which is beautifully ripe and wrapped in a cloak of satin. Wonderful Red Burgundy from Domaine Camus old vines.
