Griotte Chambertin, Louis Jadot 2005
A slightly less elegant but equally complex nose of almost exclusively red berry fruit aromas nuanced by touches of earth, underbrush and a subtle hint of game precede round, rich and generous flavors underpinned by suave tannins and a velvety and dusty finish. At present the tannins are on the chewy side and like the Latricières, this will require a certain amount of patience.

(this is purchased wine, from a blend of old and young vines) Bright red-ruby. Spicy red cherry aroma with a floral topnote. Offers moderate stuffing but very good definition and lift, with a ripe chocolatey note. Has class but the finish shows a slight dryness and could be longer.
|Score: 89/91||Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, April 2007|
Rather pale sample. Richly autumnal on the nose and then very angular tannin and acidity. Not the real integration and weight of fruit one might hope for. Very chewy and dry. Sandpaper stuff.
