Charmes Chambertin, Domaine Tortochot 2015

Tasting Notes

**Note: from .57 ha parcel in Charmes proper; aged in 80% new wood**
Once again there is a whisper of reduction that isn't enough to mask the fruit but it does knock down the expressiveness so I would counsel a thorough aeration if you're going to drink one of these early on. Otherwise there is a beguiling sense of energy to the sappy and concentrated big-bodied flavors that possess a taut muscularity before terminating in a youthfully austere finish that delivers moderately good depth and persistence. I would opt to cellar this for a while in the hopes that better overall complexity will develop.
