Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2013
A cool and highly restrained nose only grudgingly reveals notes of red and dark currant, freshly turned earth, humus and underbrush. The mid-palate is relatively supple and round, indeed refined would not be a stretch to describe the mouth feel though there is no lack of tannic spine and punch on the solidly persistent and more complex finale. This should be approachable after only 5 to 7 years of bottle age if desired.
