Charmes Chambertin 2012 Domaine Dujac
€ 301,29 (incl. Vat)
The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from the Seysses family’s 0.70-hectare holdings. It has a delightful bouquet that will surely be a joy once bottled: bright and vivacious red cherries and fresh strawberry fruit that contain so much energy. The palate is well balanced with supple tannins, the fruit profile here leaning slightly towards blacker side with a structured finish that is more “serious” than the aromatics suggest. There are hints of black coffee appearing on the aftertaste. Perhaps this will have a longer evolutionary arc than other vintages? Intriguing!
75% whole bunch. Big, rich and slightly oakier than the final blend, apparently. A firm dense wine. Not that charming actually?
