RATINGS

95Wine Spectator

...cherry and raspberry flavors...there is concentrated fruit at the core and a long, vibrant finish. Spicy aftertaste.

95Jeb Dunnuck

...floral, violet, blueberry and blackberry notes...vibrant and fresh on the palate, with notable, yet integrated acidity and a gorgeous sense of rocky minerality...juicy, firm, chiseled 2015 that has terrific purity and fine, yet present tannin...

94Stephen Tanzer

...aromas of raspberry liqueur and flowers. Plush, sweet and stuffed with red berries, spices and dried flowers, offering outstanding volume while maintaining its shape and avoiding any impression of heaviness...suave on the back end, finishing with late-arriving fine-grained tannins and resounding length.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Rich and seductive on the nose. Truly very charming... Well done. It has the lift of whole bunch on the end.

PRODUCER

Olivier Bernstein

Olivier Bernstein is a small negociant in Beaune. It was created in 2007 by Olivier Bernstein, who gave up a career in music management to pursue winemaking. He earned a degree in viticulture in Beaune, then in 2002 purchased a 20-acre wine estate in Roussillon, where he made wines under the Mas de la Deveze label. But his interest in Burgundy took him back to Beaune, where he now makes very limited amounts of Grand and Premier Crus from parcels in Chambertin, Bonnes-Mares, Mazis-Chambertin, Clos de la Roche, Clos Vougeot, Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin

Charmes-Chambertin is a 78-acre Grand Cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin that traditionally includes the acreage of nearby Mazoyeres-Chambertin. For nearly 200 years the growers of Mazoyeres have been legally allowed to sell their wines under the more famous name of Charmes-Chambertin, and virtually all of them do. Charmes-Chambertin is the largest of the Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Crus, and it generally has an excellent reputation. The slope of the vineyard is gentle and the surface soil poor. But producers including Joseph Roty, Christian Serafin, Domaine Dujac, Faiveley and Joseph Drouhin are acclaimed for their Charmes Chambertin. Principal landholders are Camus, with 14.75 acres; Perrot-Minot, 4 acres; and Armand Rousseau, 3.5 acres.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
