Charmes Chambertin 2015 Domaine Dujac
€ 482,79 (incl. Vat)
The 2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a tightly wound, undergrowth-tinged bouquet, one that is less outgoing than others that I have tasted, with damp moss scents and sea cave emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite understated for a Charmes-Chambertin, but cohesive with a pinch of pepper enlivening the finish. I might have liked a little more persistence, otherwise this is a very satisfying Charmes-Chambertin, dare I say potentially outflanked by the Gevrey Combottes this year?
A bit less distinct than the echezeaux on the nose. Sweet and round and a bit easy with fine tannins on the end. Quite low key on the end.
