- Tasting Notes
There is a distinct top note of herbal tea to the equally fresh and cool aromas of various red berries, spice, earth, game and gentle wood. There is fine intensity to the delineated and pungently mineral-driven flavors that exhibit evident power and punch on the impressively complex and long finish that is lean and linear. This will undoubtedly flesh out somewhat with time but I suspect that it will always be on the leaner side.

The 2013 Chambertin Grand Cru, which comes from the limit with the forest that produces a low yields (in one year they cut the trees and the yields increased by 20%). Matured in five new barrels, it has a perfumed bouquet with red currant, cranberry and sous-bois notes with a touch of oyster shell. The palate is very well balanced with crisp red berry fruit, fine mineralite with a sense of energy and poise on the finish. There is a fine sustain here, a great contribution to the vintage and the domaine’s top wine in 2013.
