Charmes Chambertin, Domaine Taupenot-Merme 2012
An elegant and refined nose proposes a layered mélange of plum, red currant, warm earth and discreet spice hints that include a touch of sandalwood. Here too the tannins support the middle weight plus flavors that are dense but notably fine-grained and I very much like the sense of energy to the supple mouth feel. This balanced effort is sufficiently supple to be enjoyable young yet it seems clear that this should reward longer-term cellaring.
