Charmes Chambertin 2016 Jadot
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a voluptuous and sensual bouquet, perhaps the most instantly attractive of the quintet of Jadot's grand cru Gevreys that I tasted. There are waves of crushed strawberries, black cherries, blueberry and violet aromas all neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy black cherry and boysenberry fruit laced with bay leaf and black tea, becoming more structured and Mazoyères-like on the finish (although it is proper "Charmes!").
