RATINGS

96-97The Wine Advocate

...a brothy, rich, carnal as well as sweetly berry-fruited palate impression; obvious, yet-fine grained tannins, and an almost traumatic intensity and persistence.

96Wine Spectator

...offering blackberry, cassis, plum and sandalwood aromas and flavors that glide across a silky texture. The tannins emerge on the back end, but are eventually enveloped by the sweet fruit on the long finish.

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of black fruits, minerals, mocha and smoke. Sweet, lush and seamless; a huge wine whose mineral tension enables it to maintain its pinosity.

93Burghound.com

...full-bodied and well muscled flavors that are robust to the point of a background hint of rusticity yet the ample sap rounds off the very firm finish at present.

REGION

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

Chambertin is a 32.5 acre Grand Cru vineyard in the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. More than 25 proprietors own parcels, and some parcels are as small as about 50 square yards. The famous vineyard gets its name from a 7th century peasant, Monsieur Bertin. The name is assumed to come from the phrase “champ Bertin,” or Bertin’s field. Chambertin has an altitude that varies from 275 to 300 meters and is tucked under the Montagne de la Combe-Grisard, sheltering the site from strong winds. The soil is limestone, though there is also clay and gravel. Principal proprietors by acreage owned are Armand Rousseau, 5.38 acres; Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet, 4.75 acres; and Rossignol-Trapet, 4 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.
