In its youth the Chambertin has a garnet red color, which becomes crimson, copper, with maturation. This is a meaty and strong red wine, full of tannins, generous with liquorice and earthy aromas. It will benefit from a few years in cellar to reach its peak and find its true identity.

"A healthy dollop of wood toast is in evidence along with distinctly cool and restrained aromas of wild red berries, wet stone, underbrush and exotic black tea nuances. There is a relatively supple and forward mouth feel to the mid-palate that exudes an almost pungent minerality on the solid if not exceptionally concentrated finish. There is however enough dry extract present to buffer the moderately firm tannic spine on the balanced, long and sappy finish."
