Average critic rating : 91.0 points



Here too there are soft floral hints that add a touch of elegance to the otherwise brooding and markedly sauvage aromas of earth, humus and wild dark berries. There is very good size, weight and power to the voluminous medium weight plus flavors that possess an attractively textured mouth feel, all wrapped in a lingering finish. This isn't as complex as the Clos de Vougeot but it's even longer. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2024+



The 2012 Charmes Chambertin includes fruit from both Mazoyères and Charmes-Chambertin. It has a floral bouquet that comes out of the blocks racing: pomegranate and cranberry scents, good delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very well-judged acidity and fine precision toward the finish that needs just a touch more persistence. Nevertheless, this remains a fine Charmes-Chambertin that should age well over the next decade. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
