Close to perfect.

By all accounts Chapelle-Chambertin is the lightest of all Grand Crus in the commune of Gevrey, but this was anything but. Typical Pinot Noir muskiness to go with the merest hint of tertiary character on the nose while the palate showed incredibly dense red and black fruit before a finish so piquant and spicy it would have overshadowed many a Shiraz. A wine at the very peak of its development – utterly delicious.

    Surprised BobO has not commented on this wine, especially in light of his love of Vosne-Romanee and his boerewors and wine matching preferences.
