The aromatic profile here is slightly riper though also very fresh and airy featuring notes of red and black pinot fruit liberally laced with violet nuances that give way to earthy medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent mid-palate fat and enough structure to suggest up to a decade's worth of improvement. I quite like this and overall, it's an interim step between the purity of the Lavaut and the muscle and size and weight of the bigger grands crus.
One of the nine Grand Crus vineyards within the Gevrey Chambertin area. Chapelle-Chambertin's vineyards are on gentle slopes, sheltered from the elements by woods to the north. The thin rocky soil forces the vines to work hard. The exceptional wines produced in Chapelle-Chambertin are complex, powerful and incredibly long-lasting.
