Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 95

Dark red. Deep red and dark berry liqueur aromas are strongly marked by toasty vanillin oak and Asian spices. The palate offers brighter red berry flavors, with energetic mineral and floral pastille notes and youthfully assertive oak spices sweetening the back end. With time in the glass the wine's oakiness dissipated and powerful, impressively concentrated raspberry and cassis flavors came to the fore. For the depth and power here there's excellent purity and focus.

Bright ruby without that much evolution. Bitter cherries on the nose - less majesty than the 2005. Relatively light nose for a Chambertin from a great vintage. Much richer and more exciting on the palate - quite firm. Quite racy and then very dry. Doesn't seem to have the fruit concentration of the 2005. Quite dry actually. Perhaps in a sullen stage? Rather grainy. I'd keep this quite a while. Dry finish - distinctly surly in June 2010.
