Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | 89-92

This too is quite ripe though by no means surmature, offering a mix of black cherry and blue berry accompanied by ample earth and game hints that continue onto the rich, sweet, textured and fleshy flavors that are generous but not soft on the opulent and deep finish. Like the Gevrey, this is more expressive and accessible than usual at this stage though there is an underlying tannic spine that will enable to improve for up to a decade.

Medium red. Musky, rather exotic aromas of red fruits and faded rose. Sweet but a bit medicinal and withdrawn, showing more grip but less sex appeal than the Cazetiers. This is cooler on the back end, even a tad dry. This cuvee comprises two-thirds Mazoyeres and one-third Charmes. Interestingly, Rousseau considers Mazoyeres to be more feminine in style, but points out that three-quarters of the estate's vines in Mazoyeres are relatively young.

(Two thirds of this wine comes from Mazoyères.) This wine was the first in this line-up to be treated to second fill barrels. Great fruit and one does wonder what it would be like with a slightly tighter corset, however delicate the fruit. Rich and jewelly with great freshness too. Real tingle and thrill but relatively light. This positively dances on the palate it’s so bright-fruited. Lots of sweet, gentle fruit – certainly a charmer. Very pretty indeed without being a show-off. Long with the tingle factor.

Wine Advocate | 88-90

The 2005 Charmes-Chambertin (from vines averaging around thirty years of age, two thirds of them in Mazoyere-Chambertin) is decidedly lighter in color and palate weight than its premier cru predecessors. Sweet cherry with jam and caramel suggestions dominate a supple palate, with nuances of toasted almond and licorice. This is all about polish, sweet fruit, and laid-back elegance, but is frankly a bit disappointingly straightforward in consideration of its classification, of the quality standard set by most of its stable mates, and certainly given its price.
