Critic Notes

The 2015 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru has a fragrant, floral bouquet with mineral-rich red berry fruit, hints of mulberry, dates and a touch of violets that emerges with continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip in the mouth. The tannins are fine but firm, like the Mazis-Chambertin, clamming up towards the finish as a sign to say: come back later. But there is plenty of energy here and there is palpable frisson on the aftertaste. Dec 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2020-2050

From a parcel of vines surrounded by the holdings of Domaine Fourrier, Domaine Joseph Roty's 2015 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru is excellent, offering up an expressive bouquet of red cherry, raspberries, spice, rose petal and potpourri. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and intense, with more concentration and chalky grip than the Mazis-Chambertin, and more sap and energy too. This is the most high-toned and ethereal of Roty's grands crus. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com

(from a tiny .08 ha parcel). As is often the case chez Roty, this is easily the most elegant and refined wine in the range with its exuberant red berry fruit aromas, spice, warm earth and floral hints that are also trimmed in a touch of wood. There is fine intensity to the rich, full-bodied and tautly muscular middle weight flavors that possess excellent concentration while delivering first-rate persistence on the moderately toasty finale. Like the Fontenys, this is a beautiful combination of power and refinement. Note that my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt that the generous wood toast will successfully integrate in time. Dec 2016, www.burghound.com
