(BH91-94 points) There is enough reduction present to push the fruit to the background though it does appear to be ripe. There is a really lovely mouth feel to the lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors thanks to the relatively fine grain of the tannins, all wrapped in a harmonious, even spherical finish. The complexity can't rival the best of the range but this is a fine effort all the same that should age well.

The 2012 Chapelle-Chambertin was also showing great potential when I tasted it, wafting from the glass in a mix of red and black cherries, cocoa powder, grilled meat, woodsmoke, a touch of chocolate, lovely soil tones and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with lovely focus and nascent complexity, ripe, well-integrated tannins and outstanding length and grip on the tangy and still quite primary finish. Lovely juice in the making.

(WA90-92 points) The 2012 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru, which is apparently always sourced from the same grower, has a floral bouquet with crushed violets developing on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, the one-third new oak nicely integrated, with a chewy blackcurrant pastille and white pepper finish that feels long in the mouth. This is not the most complex Chapelle-Chambertin, but it has the substance to age nicely over 15 to 20 years. - Neal Martin

High-toned aromas of raspberry, licorice and acidulated hard candy show an almost Beaujolais-like pungency. Savory and firm in the mouth, with a slightly bitter quality that has not yet integrated into the wine. Tannins are sweet but the finish is a bit inky. An awkward showing today.
