A discreet touch of wood sets off equally cool, ultra-pure and restrained aromas of dark berries, earth, wet stone and a gorgeous panoply of floral elements. There is superb intensity to the powerful and tautly muscular large-scaled flavors that exude a very fine minerality on the overtly austere, serious and strikingly long finish that delivers a whole other dimension of complexity. As Chambertin goes, this is not an especially big or brawny wine and while the word finesse is not really apt in this case, it is more refined than usual. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2028+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune, the nose on Jean-Louis Trapet’s 2011 Chambertin Grand Cru takes time to settle down, eventually offering baked cherries, strawberry, a touch of bacon fat (perhaps just a hint of brettanomyces ?) and earth, later manifesting marine influences like Armand Rousseau’s. The palate is medium-bodied with quite dense tannins, good body, but missing finesse toward the finish that feels more forward than it ought., 2014
