Lightly treacley on the nose. Really rather gorgeous! Polished tannins and very ripe fruit but not too sweet. Rather entrancing and seduces you into thinking you could drink this already! But that would be silly… It has some dynamism.

The 2020 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, matured in 15% new oak, showed just a tiny morsel of reduction on the nose, that the concentration here was still tangible. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity, taut and fresh and very precise. This has real class and verve, though it will benefit from several years in bottle.
