Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 91

The 2016 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru has a fruit-driven, slightly confit bouquet that feels later picked than its peers and without the same delineation and terroir expression. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fleshy and high-toned with notes of fig and dates infusing the red fruit. Sweet with veins of marmalade towards the finish. Not bad, but I feel there is better to come. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. [Neal Martin, 22/10/2019]

Robert Parker – 90-92

“The 2016 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru was reduced to just four hectoliters this vintage. It includes 20% whole cluster fruit and will spend 16 months in oak. It felt a little muted at first but soon found its voice with pretty crushed violet-tinged blackberry and cassis fruit. I like the delineation here. The palate is well balanced if not as nuanced or refined as the Clos de Vougeot, more masculine than its peers with a saline finish that lingers. Good, but not the greatest this year.” [Neal Martin, 29/12/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2033

JancisRobinson.com – 17.5

Cask sample. 16 months in oak. 60% whole cluster. Three barrels only. Mid greyish cherry red. Compared with the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, much sweeter fruited on the nose. A lovely contrast of sweet fruit and savoury, peppery spice on the palate. Dry, fine-grained texture. The stems have given a delicate herbal note and a finesse to the texture but overall, going back to this, I find a slight austerity needing bottle age to flesh out. (JH) [09/11/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2026-2036
