Tasting Notes

(still finishing its malolactic fermentation): Dark ruby-red. Deep aromas of black cherry, licorice and minerals are a bit disturbed by a faint malic note. Very densely packed, powerful Charmes with extremely primary black fruit flavors leavened by a sweet/savory character and subtle soil tones. Very sappy wine with terrific balance and spine; the chewy tannins are substantial but not hard. This very unevolved Charmes-Chambertin is less showy and exotic than the 2015 was last year, but finishes with considerable power and insidious violet lift.
