(from both Charmes proper and Mazoyères) Subtle wood spice notes set off the mostly red pinot fruit aromas nuanced by hints of game and underbrush that can also be found on the detailed, generous and full-bodied flavors that are generous and frank yet really quite fine on the dusty and palate staining finish.

Good dark red. Sweet, complex aromas of raspberry, minerals, spices and faded rose. Sexy and fine-grained in the mouth, with sweet flavors of kirsch, violet and minerals. Sappy, expressive wine with terrific intensity and lovely length. This has real finesse.

The 2005 Charmes-Chambertin gives a quite raw, carnal and fresh-fruited account of itself, offering plenty of fresh, ripe cherry and strawberry as well. The tannins here are very fine-grained and a silky textural sensation is emerging. Hints of black tea and herbal distillates hover persistently, and the finish is long, juicy and especially bright.
