Wine SpectatorThis majestic red offers a beam of succulent, pure cherry, oak spice, sandalwood and cinnamon notes. Intensely flavored, with a distinctive creaminess and harmony. Expands on the finish, where all the components come together, tying this up neatly on the lingering spice- and mineral-infused aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2048. 73 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chambertin Grand Cru, which was two-thirds impacted by the frost, has an elegant bouquet, not powerful but charming, with pure red berry fruit, orange blossom, cold stone and Earl Grey scents. The palate is very well balanced with a sappy entry, with good structured here and a fine line of acidity. It is not an extravagant or even regal Chambertin, but it is extremely well proportioned and there is a lovely tang of spice toward the long and tender finish. It is a wonderful Chambertin, although I suspect that it will ultimately have to bow to the superiority of the Clos-de-Bèze.
