Charmes Chambertin, Louis Jadot 2016
The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a voluptuous and sensual bouquet, perhaps the most instantly attractive of the quintet of Jadot's grand cru Gevreys that I tasted. There are waves of crushed strawberries, black cherries, blueberry and violet aromas all neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy black cherry and boysenberry fruit laced with bay leaf and black tea, becoming more structured and Mazoyères-like on the finish (although it is proper "Charmes!"). Drink Date 2021 - 2045
