Tasting Notes

The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from Mazoyères, where their parcel is populated by vines planted in 1968 and 1969. The broody bouquet does not disguise that it is Mazoyères, not Charmes, the fruit profile darker than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip, a fine bead of acidity and a sinewy style. Don’t be afraid to afford this four to five years in bottle. Very fine. Drink 2022-2035.

The 2017s form a strong follow-up to the outstanding 2016s. Colladot shows deft use of whole bunches, knows when to select new oak or used, add stems or not (details for each cuvée are presented in the tasting notes.) He allows the vineyards to articulate their own personalities so that each one offers its own take on the vintage. If you have not discovered Coquard Loison Fleurot, practice saying that name on a daily basis, or use the acronym “CLF.” It never does “DRC” any harm. Make sure you bag some of the 2017s when they hit the market.
