Chapelle Chambertin, Domaine Perrot-Minot 2016
The 2016 Chapelle-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru, which lost half its production due to frost, has quite an intense bouquet with slightly darker fruit than Perrot-Minot's Charmes-Chambertin: raspberry mingling with blackcurrant and blueberry. With aeration in the glass, it becomes quite floral and offers attractive wilted violet petal scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. I love the balance and poise of this Chapelle-Chambertin, nothing too extroverted or showy, just all about the tension and the mineralité that comes through on the finish. Drink Date 2020 - 2040
