92The Wine Advocate

...a hedonism addict's dream wine. Its blackberry and Asian spice-laden nose leads to a mouth full of palate-saturating black cherries, coffee, ice cream, and loads of sweet spices.

92Stephen Tanzer

Reticent but perfumed aromas of violet and black cherry. Sweet and dense in the mouth; has a thickness but avoids heaviness. Much finer than the last sample; in fact, this is quite stylish.

The '97 vintage is not exactly known for having high-toned red berry fruit aromas yet that is what one finds here, along with earth and underbrush nuances that continue onto the relatively primary flavors that are sappy and delicious...


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.


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.
