The deep and beautiful bouquet is a mix of strawberries, cherries, a touch of beetroot, mustard seed, a great base of soil, woodsmoke, cedar and a topnote of rose petals. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very transparent, with a fine core of fruit, superb intensity and focus, fine-grained tannins and a very, very long, elegant and utterly classic finish. The family’s small plot of vines are located in Mazoyères-Chambertin, and I would like to think that the superb quality and refinement of this wine in 2011 is a pretty strong statement that one can produce absolutely brilliant and compellingly suave Charmes from this vineyard as well. A great wine.

The 2011 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru was raised entirely in new oak. It is aromatically not a million miles away from the Aux Combotte "11" tightly wound and a little timid on the nose at first and demands coaxing. It reluctantly reveals quite intense wet limestone scents that dominate over the red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine grip on the entry with the oak lending it a smooth veneer. Harmonious and focused, it glides to quite a sinewy finish that needs a couple of years to fully integrate the wood. Very fine. Drink 2016-2028. - Neal Martin

Surprisingly supple and easygoing on the palate, and much more pliant than it appeared to be last year from barrel. But shows very good rather than outstanding concentration and could use a bit more nuance and lift on the back. This, too, is a bit salty.
