Tasting Notes

A more elegant and airier mix features an array of various red berries that is laced with notes of lavender, violet and earth. Once again there is excellent volume and mid-palate density to the big-bodied flavors that exhibit evident power and punch, all wrapped in a dusty, balanced and focused finish that also flashes a touch of wood. This is presently quite compact and though it's not quite as structured or concentrated as the Rognets, it is still going to require at least some patience.

Score: 92

The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has quite a candied bouquet with vivacious red fruit laced with orange blossom and a touch of Earl Grey tea. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, juicier than the Corton Rognet but maybe without the same degree of precision on the finish. This is a gutsy, generous Charmes-Chambertin that should age well over the next 10 to 12 years, though in this vintage it is the Mazoyères that has the upper hand.

Score: 91 - 93
