The 2015 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a slight dustiness on the nose at first, though underneath lies some attractive red berry fruit intermingling with earth and leather. The palate is medium-bodied and a little conservative in style, displaying chewy tannin, moderate acidity and a brisk blackberry- and raspberry-driven finish accented by black pepper on the aftertaste. Fine, but I suspect it will deserve a more generous appraisal in several years’ time. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2045
