About the wine

Tasting notes

Rich on the nose with generous fresh strawberry and raspberry notes that graciously allow the minerality to peek through to the surface. The palate is medium-bodied, mineral and taut with an almost electric impression of tension to sharply defined red berry, spice and crushed stone. Really wonderful flavour intensity and sappy old-vines extract here. Finishes firmly tannic and very long, with superb cut.

Expert review

Aure and elegant with a spicy and mineral-inflected nose of kirsch and plum. The seductively textured and refined middle weight flavors exhibit a wonderful sense of vibrancy on the dusty, sappy and mouth coating finish. A text book Chambolle.
