Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2011
This is both aromatically elegant and complex with notes of both red and dark currants, spice, earth and plenty of Gevrey style character. There is excellent volume to the muscular and powerful medium weight plus flavors that possess plenty of supporting dry extract that helps to buffer the moderately firm tannins on the balanced finish that delivers good if not exceptional length. This is not a great Charmes but certainly a good one.
