Antonio Galloni, November 2014,
The 2012 Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru shows the power and pure intensity of the year, while capturing the essence of Chapelle. Dark red cherry, plum, mint, spices and new leather notes meld together in a Burgundy that is both voluptuous and intensely tannic. The 2012 hasn't really shut down in bottle, but it almost certainly will. Drink 2024-2037
Burghound, January 2015,
A markedly floral nose is nuanced by essence of black cherry and discreet spice hints. The incredibly low yields are very much in evidence as this is impressively rich and concentrated yet not top heavy or ponderous with outstanding depth, balance and persistence. This is a big and powerful Chapelle with what should be exceptional cellaring potential. Drink 2023+
Domaine Pierre Damoy
The domaine boasts impressive Grand Cru holdings, especially the 5.6 hectares of Chambertin Clos de Bèze, making them its largest owner. The wines are rich and true to the styles of each vineyard.
Charmes-Chambertin is one of the nine Grand Crus vineyards within the Gevrey Chambertin area. On gentle slopes, sheltered from the elements by woods to the north, gravelly soil forces the vines to work hard. Relatively large for a Grand Cru appellation, it is hard to generalise about the wines. Often intensely perfumed and seductive, Charmes-Chambertin can be approachable earlier than its Grand Crus neighbours.
