This is also ultra-pure and densely fruited with notes of anise, mint, wet stone and a sauvage hint that introduces intensely earthy and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that are rich, powerful, serious and densely concentrated, all wrapped in a silky, palate staining, explosive and colossally persistent finish. This is actually relatively expressive and approachable for a young Cham yet the balance and harmony is present for this to age for decades. A brilliant effort and one of the best vintages ever for this justifiably revered wine.

Dark red. Ineffable aromas of red berries, mint, crushed stone and flowers. At once silky and taut, with outstanding inner-mouth energy and perfume to the powerful, penetrating flavors of berries, flowers, spices and minerals. Seems to combine the aromatic perfume of the Clos Saint-Jacques with the tension and spine of the Clos de Beze--and to take them to a higher level. This remarkable wine, utterly harmonious from the outset, saturates the palate with extract on the unflagging finish. It's nearly impossible to spit this. Give this 10 or 12 years and then enjoy it over the following decade or two. Remarkably, this wine was made from a healthy yield of nearly 40 hectoliters per hectare.

Now they have 2.55 ha thanks to a 0.4 ha parcel bought in July 2009 from Dom Belland of Santenay. They resold the rest immediately to St-Girard. Very fragrant rather than majestic. Solid and substantial and a definite step up from Clos de Bèze this year. Some solidity and on the finish there starts to be some exciting interplay between fruits and flowers – not what one normally expects of Chambertin! Good undertow. But in light register.

The 2009 Chambertin is breathtaking in its beauty. It boasts gorgeous textural depth and richness in its eternal, endless layers of fruit. This is a totally seamless wine that captures the style of the year and the personality of the vineyard. A sweet note of cassis lingers on the finessed finish.
