Charmes Chambertin, Louis Jadot 2015
Moderate wood frames the notably ripe yet fresh array of red currant, earth and once again, plenty of sauvage characters that can also be found on the rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that possess a succulent, even opulent mouth feel. The finish though is slightly sweet and this aspect is accentuated by the wood treatment. While there is nothing technically amiss, I can't say this especially appeals to me though in fairness, the sweetness may very well dissipate with enough bottle age. Drink: 2027+ Note: from Charmes proper

The 2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a rounded, generous bouquet with scents of red cherries, kirsch and incense. The palate is sweet and precocious on the entry with brown spices infusing the red cherry fruit, although I found the new oak a little conspicuous towards the finish. I would look for more refinement once this grand cru is in bottle. Drink Date 2019 - 2032
