There are six barrels of the 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru this year since the grand cru was touched by the frost, albeit to a lesser degree than in Chambertin. It has a very pure and complex bouquet, with scents of black cherry and wild strawberry, cold wet slate, something almost like wild moorland. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, perfectly judged acidity, almost gentle on the entry and then nonchalantly fanning out as it goes along. There is absolutely nothing grandiose about this Charmes-Chambertin, but the finesse and the poise, not least the extraordinarily long aftertaste is something to behold. Nobody makes Charmes-Chambertin like Denis Bachelet.
