Charmes Chambertin TVV, Domaine Joseph Roty and Domaine Philippe Roty 2016

Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .16 ha parcel in Charmes proper of vines planted in 1885 that have never been pulled up though Roty points out that those that have died over the years have been replanted**
More moderate, though hardly invisible, oak influence can be found on the notably ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum and a panoply of spice and earth elements. The detailed, powerful and punchy imposingly-scaled flavors possess first-rate mid-palate density as the sappy dry extract coats the mouth on the very firmly structured finish that flashes both better depth and persistence. Excellent quality though again note well that this is very serious and will need extended aging.
