Average critic rating : 93.0 points



This wine has a bright black color and a profound nose of sweet cherries laced with toasty oak. This elegant, velvety-textured, medium-to-full-bodied, and concentrated wine reveals smoked bacon, black cherries, cassis, minerals, and grilled oak. While seemingly not as dense and intense as the Mazis, this offering appears to be holding a great deal in reserve.||Roty told me that the Griotte-Chambertin vineyard was formed by a meteorite that crashed to earth thousands of years ago. He claims this explains the large deposits of iron that render it so distinct from the Chapelle-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, and Chambertin Clos de Beze vineyards that border it. This wine should be consumed between 2005 and 2010. Wine Advocate.August, 1998
