Vinous – 94
The 2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a powerful bouquet of ample red berry fruit laced with brown spices, still sporting some new oak to be subsumed with bottle age. The palate is well balanced and rounded in texture, displaying plenty of new oak, but this is simpatico with the fruit and there is impressive depth and substance to the finish. It will require several years in bottle, but I suspect this will evolve into a very fine Grand Cru. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2045
