Camille Giroud Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru
Price: $222.78 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
Mild reduction knocks the nose down and this seems in keeping with the serious, brooding and structured big-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration though the finish is rather dry and a bit tough. Hail damage?

Camille Giroud’s 2006 Chapelle-Chambertin Champs (from purchased juice) boasts scents of blackberry, mulberry, and licorice with a whiff of smoke. Ample and firm but relatively fine tannins and suggestions of wet stone underlie its black fruits on a dense palate. This exhibits impressive if somewhat somber length, suggesting a wine that will probably be worth following for half a dozen years.

A fresh, powerful red, whose cherry and tobacco notes are squeezed by stiff tannins. Linear and vibrant, requiring time to integrate and absorb its tannins.

Bright, deep red. Red fruits, minerals and a loamy element on the nose. Sweet on entry, then a bit diffuse in the middle palate, showing some vague red fruits along with smoke, game and underbrush. Finishes with substantial, slightly drying tannins.
