The 2013 Chambertin, which comes from the 65-year-old vines only, has a perfumed, more floral bouquet than the Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with quite sinewy tannins with blackcurrant pastilles, a touch of sea salt and a twist of cracked black pepper on the structured, quite masculine finish. Give this several years in bottle.

Not surprisingly the aromatic profile here is similar to that of the Gevrey 1er though with a bit more ripeness and complexity as well as notably more spice elements. There is markedly more density and power to the more imposingly scaled flavors yet there is no sense of undue weight, particularly on the balanced and beautifully long finale. I very much like the texture and this wine is the epitome of power without weight. In short, this is good stuff.
