Tasting Notes

    The 2011 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru is from a half-hectare located in the top right hand corner as you look at the climat on the map. It offers a charming and gentle, almost Charmes-Chambertin-like bouquet that unfolds in the glass. The palate has a slight reduction on the palate that smudges the overall effect and yet it is rounded and supple in the mouth with cranberry, raspberry leaf and a pinch of black pepper toward the tender finish. Fine. Drink 2017-2027

    Score: 92-94

    This is very reduced though there is good freshness and verve to the notably rich and generous medium-bodied flavors that display enough minerality to add lift to the taut and muscular finish that packs plenty of punch but not rusticity. This is markedly austere and exceptionally serious and I would also describe this as very old school. I would advise buying this only with the intention of cellaring it for the long-term. Drink 2022+

    Bright dark red. Aromas of black raspberry, crushed stone and iron are currently a bit blocked by an element of smoky reduction. Chewy and savory in the mouth, conveying complex, saline soil tones but with fruit in the deep background today. A bit dumb at present, and not at all sweet. Finishes with a serious dusting of oak tannins. In a rather awkward stage but there's plenty of material here.

    Jancis Robinson, November 2012,
    Score: 18

    Very low yields. Dark crimson. Very scented and flattering. Juicy with sweet fruit. Exciting. Sweet and dense with very fine tannins and concentration of subtle fruit. Very subtle and charming. Not quite as explosive as the Bressandes but nearly. Drink 2018-2030

Griotte-Chambertin

Although the name Griotte-Chambertin comes from a word for a grill-pan inspired by the shape of the vineyard, locals and critics alike agree that there is an unmistakeable scent of cherries in this delectable wine. One of the nine Grand Cru vineyards to be found within Gevrey Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertins are wines of great power, complexity and longevity.
