1990 Charmes Chambertin Tres Vieilles Vignes

Joseph Roty

flagBurgundy / France

Roty made three dazzling wines in 1990, but you will probably have to make a substantial withdrawal from your bank in order to afford them. At the top end, his 1990s are every bit as superb as his 1980s and 1985s.||The spectacular Charmes-Chambertin-Vieilles Vignes (from 90-95 year old vines) is the essence of Pinot Noir, with a saturated color, intense nose of black fruits, flowers, and oak, and a phenomenal, port-like richness. This stunning wine has plenty of tannin, sound acidity, and a mind-boggling finish. It should be drinkable in 4-5 years and keep for up to 20.||Anyone who has visited the Roty cellars knows that while interesting, one's stay can be painfully long given (1) Roty's chain smoking, (2) incessant non-wine talk, and (3) general reluctance to answer specific questions.
