Fine delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied and flirts with over-ripeness on the kirsch infused opening, though reins everything in towards the finish with an attractive saline aftertaste. Good potential. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse

Very vivid and aromatic with perfume and floral character. Sliced strawberries and lemons. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and delicious aftertastes of fruit, hazelnut and light chocolate. Drink in 2021.

On the palate the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and intense, its fine, chalky tannins cloaked in a rich, deep core of succulent fruit. This should age superbly.

Offering up aromas of raspberries, cherries, dried flowers and citrus rind, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a broad, richly textured attack, satiny but abundant structuring tannins and juicy acids, concluding with a long finish where the wine's structure finally asserts itself in the form of gentle back-end grip. It's an excellent Chambolle that numbers among the comparative sleepers of the 2016 vintage.- WK collapse
