The 2016 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a crisp red cherry and crushed strawberry scented bouquet with just a touch of tomato vine. The oak is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, a fine bead of acidity, a touch of fleshiness towards the finish with hints of white pepper and clove. This is a complex and persistent Grand Cru that will age with style. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2050
