Barrel sample. Mid crimson. Openly fragrant with sweet, vanilla-laced dark-red fruits. Really intense fruit on the nose. Ripe yet pure and fresh. On the palate, an excellent combination of fresh restraint and scented fruits. Dense but elegant. Very good, very long. Great harmony already and so much more to come. (JH)

Aromas of cassis, wild berries, blood orange and coniferous forest floor introduce the 2018 LatriciÃ¨res-Chambertin Grand Cru, a full-bodied, immensely refined wine that’s built around powdery tannins and a bright spine of acidity. Long and perfumed, this is a superb bottle in the making that will reward bottle age.
