RATINGS

96The Wine Advocate

A sappy, chewy, medium to full-bodied wine of considerable depth and concentration, it slathers the taster’s palate with chunky layers of fleshy black cherries and blackberries.

92-95Stephen Tanzer

Wonderfully creamy and deep, with a penetrating character and strong minerality that reinforces the impression of firmness.

91-92Burghound.com

A brooding yet knockout nose of superb spiciness, earth and very ripe plum notes gives way to soft, forward, mouth coating and impressively structured and concentrated flavors that offer plenty of depth and length... In a word, terrific.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Lots of quite grainy tannins but quite supple and fine on the palate. Just a note of dried fruits on the finish.

REGION

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

Chapelle-Chambertin is a 13.5-acre Grand Cru vineyard just north of Griotte-Chambertin in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin. Its name comes from the chapel of Notre Dame de Beze, a chapel built in 1155 by the monks of Abbey de Beze and demolished several centuries later during the French Revolution. There is not much slope in this vineyard, nor much soil. Louis Jadot and Claude Dugat have small parcels here, though the largest landholders are Pierre Damoy, 5 acres; Ponsot 1.7 acres; and Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet, 1.5 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.
