Region: Gevrey-Chambertin

Variety: Red Burgundy
Vintage: 2012

" Discreet wood sets off a highly reserved and not quite as overtly ripe nose of dark berries, earth, and animale nuances that are trimmed in notes of spice, in particular anise, sandalwood and exotic tea scents. There is superbly good detail and focused power to the large-scaled flavors that also possess an outstanding concentration of structure buffering dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the intensely mineral-driven and explosively long finish. This is a youthfully austere example of the genre that is presently quite compact and linear and thus will require at least a decade to flesh out and unwind but if you have the patience to wait it should be a great Chambertin in 20+ years. 97 Points/Drink 2034+" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

"100% new oak. Much more aromatic than the Clos de B├Ęze. Magnificent stuff that makes you wonder how a humble grape could have caused all this flavour. Not the heaviest Chambertin ever but such integrity and richness. Some chestnut notes and lots of sinew. Certainly not sweet but with masses of rich fruit. Zesty and polished. 19+ Points/Drink 2022-2042." - Jancis Robinson
