An elegant, fresh and admirably pure nose is notably more expressive with its array of red currant, warm earth and anise-tinged aromas that convey plenty of floral elements. There is once again fine richness to the round, supple and punchy medium-bodied flavors that terminate with notes of bitter cherry and a hint of warmth. This mildly austere effort is lovely and very Charmes.

The 2015 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru has an expressive bouquet with redcurrant, raspberry coulis, a touch of honey and a hint of Seville orange marmalade. It opens nicely in the glass, though does not slip into fifth gear at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, cohesive in the mouth and quite saline and spicy. There is generosity here, a trait of Charmes-Chambertin, with the mineral core surfacing right at the finish as it fans out. This is an impressive follow-up to the superb 2014 and it should give 20+ years of pleasure.
