Decanter, November 2018
One of the jewels in the Drouhins' array of grands crus, this old-vine parcel covers 0.5ha. Intensely coloured, with 80% new wood for support, this is aromatic and textured, unfurling aromas and flavours of liquorice...   One of the jewels in the Drouhins' array of grands crus, this old-vine parcel covers 0.5ha. Intensely coloured, with 80% new wood for support, this is aromatic and textured, unfurling aromas and flavours of liquorice, blueberry and rose petal in the glass. It's sappy and focussed, with filigree tannins.

(90-93) A background application of wood serves as a reasonably neutral backdrop for the floral and attractively spicy aromas of plum and dark pinot fruit that is cut with a touch of earth character. There is more volume...   (90-93) A background application of wood serves as a reasonably neutral backdrop for the floral and attractively spicy aromas of plum and dark pinot fruit that is cut with a touch of earth character. There is more volume if less power to the more generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that also helps to buffer the moderately firm tannic spine. This has the legs to age well over the medium to even longer-term but should drink reasonably well young if desired.

(VN 90-92 points) The 2017 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru matures with 25% whole bunches and in 80% new wood. It has quite an intense bouquet with small black cherry, blackcurrant and subtle pressed iris flower scents...   (VN 90-92 points) The 2017 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru matures with 25% whole bunches and in 80% new wood. It has quite an intense bouquet with small black cherry, blackcurrant and subtle pressed iris flower scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, very cohesive in the mouth. The wood integrates nicely on the finish even if I would have just dialed it down. Maybe a little more personality on the finish is needed to get up there with the best from this Grand Cru. -- Neal Martin
