The gorgeous nose jumps from the glass in a mix of black cherries, plums, grilled meats, woodsmoke, a very complex base of dark soil tones, a touch of nutskin and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and sappy at the core, with impeccable balance, bottomless depth, fine-grained tannins and stunning length and grip on the still quite youthful finish. This wine is potentially quite opulent in style, but today, this is all beautifully harnessed behind a completely seamless, but substantial structure. A legend in the making!

The Roty 2012 Charmes-Chambertin is astoundingly good, and it has yet to shut down in the cellar. The bouquet reveals a lovely melange of black cherry, plum and rich soil tones that synergize beautifully with the wine's high toast cooperage. On the palate, the wine is carrying quite a bit of puppy fat that makes it deceptively accessible, but it's clear that when the very serious and refined structural chassis hidden behind that youthful precocity begins to open up a decade or so down the line, it will be an even more massive, bottomless wine. What a legacy the late Philippe Roty has left us! - William Kelley

Highly complex aromas of raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant blueberry, iron and dried flowers. Sappy on entry, then quite backward in the middle palate despite hinting at superripeness, with a crunchy blueberry flavor joined on the end by almost medicinal notes of red licorice and menthol. With its chewy, mouth-saturating tannins, this is almost austere today. But the extremely long, dry finish leaves the mouth vibrating. As in most successful vintages, this wine is likely to enjoy a long evolution in bottle. 94+

A dense and serious nose displays notes of wood toast, black cherry, spice, earth, game and once again plenty of sauvage character. The toast is also present on the broad-shouldered middle weight plus flavors that abound... A dense and serious nose displays notes of wood toast, black cherry, spice, earth, game and once again plenty of sauvage character. The toast is also present on the broad-shouldered middle weight plus flavors that abound with palate coating dry extract that also serves to buffer the markedly firm tannic spine on the powerful but not rustic finish where a mild hint of warmth is discernible. This is also noticeably muscular and will likewise require an extended stay in a cool cellar.
