1996 Louis Jadot Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93Red-ruby. Deep, primary aromas of black raspberry, mocha, violet and roasted game. Powerful attack, then very concentrated, juicy and intensely flavored. A wine of great thrust; almost painful today. Explosive, extremely persistent aftertaste saturates the palate with soil tones. Strong but sweet tannins are supported by sheer extract. Finishing notes of crystallized berries.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 1999
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94This bright, medium-to-dark ruby/purple-colored wine is extraordinary. Intense aromas of cassis, blackberries, and fresh herbs all covered in luscious milk chocolate give way to this wine's full-bodied, rich, and dense personality. Expressive layers of sweet dark fruits, earth, spices, as well as roasted and grilled herbs can be found in this complex, structured, and broad wine. Its formidably long and expansive finish also possesses copious yet supple tannins. Wow! Readers who have never had a glorious Chapelle are well-advised to scour their favorite wine shops for this gem.Author: Pierre Rovani
