Chapelle Chambertin, Louis Jadot 2016
The 2016 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a very well-defined bouquet, a melange of red and black fruit, truffle and smoke gently unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, quite tensile and focused but very precise and fanning out with confidence on the tender finish. As good, if not better than, the 2015 Chapelle-Chambertin from Jadot. Drink 2021 - 2050.

Cask sample. Lightish crimson. Fragrant with sweet red cherry, charming and seductive. Relatively slight on the palate. The tannins are super-fine and the freshness is there but the density is less than I might have expected in the middle.

The Chapelle-Chambertin, from 80-year-old vines which were formerly part of the Domaine Clair-Daü, is superb this year, wafting from the glass with notes of rose petal, cherry and cocoa powder. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and elegantly open-knit, with supple tannins and a lovely core of supple, sappy fruit.
