Louis Jadot Chapelle Chambertin 2015
This is a wine of delicacy and finesse, with notes of berries, earth and oak in a silken texture. This wine will improve in the bottle for 20 to 25 years.

BurghoundThis too displays noticeable wood influence though here it's more in the form of menthol than toast though it's not so much as to materially impede the appreciation of the red cherry and overtly floral-scented nose where ample hints of the sauvage and warm earth eventually appear. There is remarkably good concentration as the old vine sap is immediately evident whilst coating the palate and pushing the even firmer tannic spine to the background on the powerful and intensely mineral-driven finale. Despite the impressive size, weight and power this is actually more refined than usual but even so, it's going to require a very long snooze in an appropriately cool cellar. In sum, this is seriously good Chapelle.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has an open red cherry, crushed strawberry and sea spray-scented bouquet that perhaps does not quite have the complexity, nor the intrigue of the Mazis-Chambertin at this stage. The palate is refined with grippy tannin and a commendable sense of energy and tension. The salinity comes through on the finish and lends this grand cru fine sappiness, urging you back for another sip. For those with patience...
